This book is well worth reading if you're interested in children's issues in Russia. Fujimura writes clearly about the causes that lead to so many children being abandoned, and how they spend their lives in institutions and/or on the street. She provides good insight into the government's response (or lack thereof) and societal prejudices against abandoned children, and a variety of other challenges that need to be overcome in order to deal more appropriately with abandoned children.
