Book Report : Orange is the New Black
Career, fiance, and a loving family surrounded Piper Kerman. She had no idea she was about to go to federal prison for an act she committed 10 years prior until a FBI agent rapped on her Brooklyn apartment. What happens next is a whirlwind of emotions experienced by Piper as she is incarcerated for her year and a half sentence. It’s one of those books you just can’t put down as Piper “falls down the rabbit hole” into the American penal system. As cliche as it sounds, you’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and you will sympathize with her as she encounters women prisoners of all ages and ultimately finds out who she truly is.
