Thank You!

Well, The Girl Behind The Door has been out now for a little over a month and we’re off to a pretty good start. I’m ranked about 300,000th in sales out of 3,000,000 – a little ways to go – but the reviews have been genuine and terrific.

“I am crying at how much you loved her.”

“John Brooks hands us his heart and soul in this deeply personal account of his and his wife’s unconditional love for and ongoing parenting struggles with their adopted child Casey, who at the age of 17, took her own life.”

“This book is a painfully honest memior of one family’s experience with international adoption and reactive attachment disorder.”

“If tragedy is partly defined as “good intentions gone badly”, then John Brooks’ family story is a showcase of tragic beginnings, tragic circumstances, and tragic endings.”

I’m reaching out to a broader group now and wanted to share this video trailer for The Girl Behind The Door.

  1. John,

    I just received a copy of your book and I am looking forward to reading it. I have been following your story for many years and as a Sociology major, I am interested to know more. I am deeply saddened by the circumstances of your book, and have taken an interest in the situation from finding your website, in 2009. Seeing that Casey was just a few years younger than myself, its a situation that hits close to home. I am glad to see that we are close to constructing a suicide barrier, and I pray there are no more delays in the project. Thank you for bringing your story into the light, as I feel it has really brought the barrier project a step forward.

    Take care John,

    – Zach Young
