Book Review~Neglected but Undefeated by Jonathan Burkett

Neglected But Undefeated, a true story by Jonathan Anthony Burkett, follows a young boy from Jamaica as he grows up in the USA.  A happy, carefree little boy when he left his grandparent's care in Jamaica, his life quickly became one of horrible abuse and neglect.  As he grew, this boy was abused in so many ways.  This story follows him as he grows up, how he fights for his life, and how  he tries to find love and acceptance. 

Before I agreed to read Neglected But Undefeated, I was warned that it would be a difficult book to read, due to its content.  Having cared for children who had been abused, and adopting one myself, I was interested in the author's story.  Let me tell you, the warnings were warranted.  Besides all the abuse, which is heartbreaking, there are swear words and sexual content.  This is the REAL story of the author's life, nothing is sugar-coated.  Mr. Burkett did a great job writing his story, and even though it was hard to read(have tissues ready), it was also hard to put down.  Neglected But Undefeated is definitely an inspirational story that shows God's faithfulness. 

Jonathan Burkett is a talented author, with several other books he has authored.  At the end of the book, he shares his quotes and poetry, which are amazing.  Visit the author at his website, www.jonathanburkett.com.  You can also find him on Facebook at www.facebook.com/neglectedbutundefeated .  Purchase Neglected But Undefeated at Amazon.
