This book started out good then just got boring It's very short and I still had to struggle to keep my attention on it The stories just sort of jump around and don't delve very deep or ever get interesting before they just end and jump to something else You never really get invested in the characters or actions that are happening The end was so boring and lame that I had to fight to not just abandon it Some of it is just very unbelievable there's no way a baby under a year old is going to have memories and feelings from when she was in prison I mean come on You expect me to believe you remember being in a crib in a prison Yeah right

This is an absolutely riveting story I'm surprised that anyone can be unmoved by it I'm dazzled by the author's candor grit insight fierceness and just about everything else In addition to having written a memoir about her remarkable journey having been born in prison and raised by adopted parents who didn't know how to talk to her about her past she is a speaker in prisons and to law enforcement and social work people who deal with the prison population through her non profit organization UnPrison Deborah Jiang Stein is an incredibly courageous tough smart ferocious woman who regularly deals with a group of people prisoners and women prisoners whom most of us have the luxury to ignore I am filled with admiration for what she does and for what she's done with her life and with the story she's had the dedication to craft and share with us And grateful she has opened my eyes to all of this

Prison BabyF life in prison Deborah spiraled into emotional lockdown For years she turned to drugs violence and crime as a way to cope with her grief Ultimately Deborah overcame the stigma shame and secrecy of her birth and found peace by helping others proving that redemption and acceptance are possible even from the darkest corne. This review is based on a copy I received through a Goodreads giveawayPrison Baby is the memoir of Deborah Jiang Stein who was born in prison to a mother who struggled with drug addiction She was subseuently adopted by a couple and accidentally discovered the circumstances of her birth during her childhood The book details many of the author's complex emotions and struggles that she experienced over the following yearsThis book starts out very strong The author's writing style helped me to really empathize with her emotions as a child She shares very honest painful memories of her childhood The middle portion of the book was the weakest for me The author engages in many risky behaviors while dealing with her emotional pain but I was left feeling like something was missing or was glossed over in this part of the book It just wasn't as complete for me as the chapters dealing with her childhood years The final portion of the book deals with the author's adult life and how she has learned to live with her personal challengesOverall a good read I admire the author for her frankness in discussing many deeply personal feelings she has experienced Her openness allows the reader a greater understanding of her struggles I wish the pace and tone of the entire book could have matched the beginning of the book If it had I think it would appeal to a broader range of readers
