This was an interesting and sad but also hilarious memoir. At the age of 12 Augusten Borrough's mother gave him to her crazy psychiatrist to raise. Augusten finds himself in a strange old house with a whole bizarre cast of characters.
I was quite intrigued by this story, and horrified and amazed that it was actually true; that his mother left him to live there. But I suppose there's nothing technically illegal about it. Anyways, it was an incredible story of survival in extraordinary circumstances, and I enjoyed the way Burroughs described the different people he meets at the psychiatrist's house.
