Dorie: The Girl Nobody Loved

Nonfiction by Doris Van Stone.

Dorie: The Girl Nobody Loved

The true story of a little girl abused and rejected by her parents, this book was fascinating and slightly disturbing to read.  I was reminded of A Child Called It by Dave Peltzer, which featured a little boy in a similar situation, although I seem to remember the abuse in the latter book being more carefully described and therefore more painful to read about.

Doris Van Stone spends less than half the book on her troubled childhood, however, and it is the positivity of this story that really made it a good story.
