All the Ugly and Wonderful Things: A Novel - Bryn Greenwood

I understand all the controversy regarding this, but I don't agree. I think this was a hard look at mistakes made by a family, court system, and community. I have seen some people think the book is glorifying pedophilia, and again I disagree. I think Kellen in the book was mildly mentally handicapped, like around 14 mentally, in a man's body. I do think it should be required reading for anyone getting a degree in social work because it helps the reader to see things from the mindset of a child growing up in severe dyfunction.
