Piper Kerman's IS the new memoir!

In Orange is the New Black -Piper Kerman shares with her readers an incredible journey through the Danbury prison system. Her own story entwined with her dormies' made me rethink my perceptions about prison life and how ill prepared people are to reenter society. Orange reads like a novel, the kind you don't want to end except in this case the reader will, so that Piper can come home and be with her family and friends -those who got her through this amazing ordeal.
