I travel a lot and so have started listening to audio books! They are much better than listening to music. Overall, I really enjoyed this The Kid: A True Story audio book - however, as much as I want to sympathize with Kevin, I'm finding it really hard! Being born into the era that we were has always been difficult - we have all (of a similar age) faced poverty and a very tough life.
I was born with phsyical disabilities and my parents had me institutionalised at a very early age (4, I believe). I was so very unhappy too . My brothers and sisters were "normal". While I was not abused by my parents (but, greatly abused in the institution) I could never bear a grudge against people that didn't know any better i.e my parents. Kevin, your parents didn't know any better either and I hope that one day you will forgive them.
