Reviews

"Powerful . . . gripping to read."--Examiner.com
"The Wild Truth is a moving narrative of domestic abuse, grief and survival, and for the perspective and revelations it contains, an essential additon to the Into the Wild story."--Newsweek
"The Wild Truth is an important book on two fronts: It sets the record straight about a story that has touched thousands of readers, and it opens up a conversation about hideous domestic violence hidden behind a mask of prosperity and propriety."--NPR.org
"A powerful book...For me, reading it was like finding a crucial missing word in the middle of a crossword puzzle: once those letters were filled in, the answers to the blank spaces around them also cascaded into place."--Eva Holland, Vela Magazine
"Helping her readers become more familiar with the overwhelming burdens caused by dysfunctional parents is one of The Wild Truth's major achievements. [McCandless] touches each of us...[we] have a better sense of what drove her brother and compelled her to write about her own harrowing history."--Anchorage Press
"One of the driving points of The Wild Truth is that [McCandless's] famous, ultimately fatal journey of adventure and discovery was motivated in large part by a desire to escape his parents...Carine's new book fleshes out the causes of Chris's actions with much more detail and impact."--Outsideonline.com
