This is a great insight into the mind of someone struggling with the horrors of Jay and Ken Kay's Tranquility Bay WWASP facility. As a survivor myself (2004-05), I can attest to its authentic nature.

A difficult read due to its subject nature, the narrative meanders back and forth, but in a way that makes perfect sense as someone who struggles to explain the nature of TB myself.

Incredible story of survival and strength. The book is a fast and easy read that is emotionally charged. I could not put it down. The author deals with feelings of abandonment, fear, anger, depression, hope and love throughout this story. I highly recommend it.

As a social worker I have been fascinated by learning about schools and residential programs for youth who are struggling in their life at the moment. This memoir has really opened my eyes that not all programs are helpful. Youth and their families can be taken advantage of by programs that claim to be "experts" in the field of helping struggling youth and their families and instead, abuse the youth that parents have entrusted to the program to help them. "Trapped in Paradise: A Memoir" is a must read for all who are interested in learning more about residential programs for troubled youth and should be read by any parent thinking about sending their child to a residential program.
