The Misadventures of a Ukrainian Orphan
“Vitaly” Book Reviews
Arthur B.Biochemistry Consultant
“This book really resonated with me. The feelings of being 'different' very much mirrored my own feelings growing up. And the way he described how he dealt with those feelings were also mine. Great!”

“Vitaly’s story is one of a coming of age during a tumultuous time in Ukraine. It was fascinating to see his perseverance through difficult times, and to join him on his quest for love and acceptance.”
“Vitaly's story of boyhood life is so full of personal stories of his thinking, living, surviving trouble, satisfying curiosity, learning, not settling, and building confidence, that it is hard to put down. I loved it.”
Kimball K.Property Manager
“I enjoyed reading some funny and some sad stories about Vitaly. His stories are a good example of endurance and perseverance. I didn't know the difficult circumstances people in other countries faced, until I read the book. The book is a true eye opener!”
