Cinderland A haunting literary debut about the cost of keeping quiet.Amy Jo Burns grew up in Mercury, Pennsylvania, an industrial town humbled by the steel collapse of the 1980s Instead of the construction booms and twelve hour shifts her parents generation had known, the Mercury Amy Jo knew was marred by empty houses, old strip mines, and vacant lots It wasn t quite a ghost town only because many people had no choice but to stay.The year Burns turned ten, this sleepy town suddenly woke up Howard Lotte, its beloved piano teacher, was accused of sexually assaulting his female students Among the countless girls questioned, only seven came forward For telling the truth, the town ostracized these girls and accused them of trying to smear a good man s reputation As for the remaining girls well, they were smarter They lied Burns was one of them.But such a lie has its own consequences Against a backdrop of fire and steel, shame and redemption, Burns tells of the boys she ran from and toward, the friends she abandoned, and the endless performances she gave to please a town that never trusted girls in the first place.This is the story of growing up in a town that both worshipped and sacrificed its youth a town that believed being a good girl meant being a quiet one and the long road Burns took toward forgiving her ten year old self Cinderland is an elegy to that young girl s innocence, as well as a praise song to the curative powers of breaking a long silence.

  1. The thing about memoirs is that the author is the hero and the story is how they remember it Though names have been changed, I have little doubt that I too graduated in Mercury s class of 1999 Mercury from the eyes of one of its most introverted is bound to be different from one of its stars I applaud Amy Jo for having her book published I remember her stating her future goals aloud in one of our classes, stating that one day she wanted to write human interest stories.I, like most everyone e The thing about memoirs is that the author is the hero and the story is how they remember it Though names have been changed, I have little doubt that I too graduated in Mercury s class of 1999 Mercury from the eyes of one of its most introverted is bound to be different from one of its stars I applaud Amy Jo for having her book published I remember her stating her future goals aloud in one of our classes, stating that one day she wanted to write human interest stories.I, like most everyone else from Mercury, was in the background of this story We did not take piano We went to the Catholic, Methodist or even the other Presbyterian ...

  4. It is difficult to write a review of a memoir, due in part to it being someone s life story that was partially laid out for them by circumstances of birth, as well as the fact that the author is an inherently flawed narrator by only having their own thoughts to base it upon In fiction, even if written in first person, at least the author has an idea of what is going on in the other characters Cinderland A Memoir is particularly difficult due to the subject of molestation Anyone being able It is difficult to write a review of a memoir, due in part to it being someone s life story that was partially laid out for them by circumstances of birth, as well as the fact that the author is an inherently flawed narrator by only having their own thoughts to base it upon In fiction, even if written in first person, at least the author has an idea of what is going on in the other characters Cinderland A Memoir is particularly difficult due to the subject of molestation Anyone being able to write about it deserves credit for that alone.That all being said, this review took me days to finish, and I finally decided to review as I would any other story, fictional or not It is based upon a complimentary copy provided through the Goodreads First Reads program in exchange for an honest review.The positive of Cinderland is that it does an excellent job of exploring the feelings that stay with abuse victims throughout their lives It takes an emotional and developmenta...

Boys will be boys, Burns says of Mercury s attitude, and girls will betrouble, or untrustworthy, or teases In any case, girls get the shorter end of the stick And when the piano teacher was accused of assaulting students, it was in many ways the girls who came forward who were put on trial.I volunteer at a rape crisis centre, and so much of what Burns discusses aligns with the things we talk about Lotte the piano teacher isolating, grooming his students Trauma not being easily class Boys will be boys, Burns says of Mercury s attitude, and girls will betrouble, or untrustworthy, or teases In any case, girls get the shorter end of the stick And when the piano teacher was accused of assaulting students, it was in many ways the girls who came forward who were put on trial.I volunteer at a rape crisis centre, and so much of what Burns discusses aligns with the things we talk about Lotte the piano teacher isolating, grooming his students Trauma not being easily classified based on how serious a crime is to the court Much of the community refusing to believe that it s true, in a not in our backyard kind of mentality they don t want to admit that sexual assault can happen anywhere, can happen here.Burns talks a lot about the silence that seems to grip the town her parents don t address the accusations indeed, they aren t th...
