Warning, this book may be a trigger book for some. It tells of veterans and their struggles especially with problems with their families and treatment. It brings light to what veterans must go through when they come back from the war, such as PTSD and financial struggles.

Orange is the New Blacl/Piper Kerman
True story about 13 mo prison stay of Piper Kerman. It was a ten-year old drug smuggling offense but she was turned in. She gave a gut-wrenching account of living inside prison walls of federal correctional facility in Danbury, CT. She made friends and survived. It is a very sad tale about prison life but a strong victory for her because she became a stronger woman, learned skills in prison, and made it through and home to her loving fiancé and family who never gave up on her! It makes you grateful for simple things we take for granted on a daily basis.
