His name was Kevin but his keepers called him Zoo Boy. He didn't talk. He hid under tables and surrounded himself with a cage of chairs. He hadn't been out of the building in the four years since he'd come in. He was afraid of water and wouldn't take a shower. He was afraid to be naked, to change his clothes. He was nearly 16.

Desperate to see change in the boy, the staff of Kevin's adolescent treatment center hired Hayden. As Hayden read to him and encouraged him to read, crawling down into his cage of chairs with him, Kevin talked. Then he started to draw and paint and showed himself to have a quick wit and a rolling, seething, murderous hatred for his stepfather.

Teacher Torey Hayden takes an unusual case, a fifteen year old boy named Kevin who doesn't speak, or is "electively mute." With Torey's help, Kevin begins to speak again. His progress at the hospital, however, is erratic because of horrifying circumstances that brought him into custodial care. His sister was beaten to death by their alcoholic father, and the father also physically abused Kevin, and urged his sisters to abuse him sexually as well.

As one might expect,the road to recovery is not smooth at all. Kevin is given several placements with foster parents and other caretakers which do not work out. However, with Torey's aid, Kevin begins taking small steps toward becoming independent. In the end, he goes to high school and survives the academic and social challenges. He also finds a group home that caters to mentally disabled adults and does well there. An inspiring story.

I think this is one of Toray's best. I didn't think I'd identify with it because it was about a boy, but once I got into it, I was hooked.
I hadn't thought of boys as being the subject of such abuse, and yet he turned out so well. Very impressive.

I've read most of Torey Hayden's books and this one and "Ghost Girl" are my very favorite. I couldn't wait to find out what happened next. Kevin is a hero.

Ms. Hayden has truly touched my heart. To realize that one person can make such a difference in the lives of others inspires me to do more with my life. I wish there were more talented education/social service professionals out there that would document their amazing life experiences. What a shame that most stories go untold.

This book is quite possibly the best book i've ever read. I must go out and buy more of Torey Hayden's books, I am hooked. I was clinging to every page, staying awake all night to see what happened next. Her devotion and patience with these kids is astounding. The way she cared about Kevin amazed me. The way she practicly sacraficed her life for this child, just to see him come through to the other side. It brings me hope for the troubled children in my life. I know now that i can make a difference.

Torey's writing style puts you into the room, into the conversations, the mental picture that is painted will make you feel that you are there. Very well written, hard to read a times, but well worth it. There is hope and healing an all it takes is one person to help start you on your journey.

Murphy's Boy is a beautifully written true story about an elective mute child who struggles with the after effects of childhood abuse. It is a real page turner. The writer shows strength and sensitivity and vulnerability and fine attention to detail. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to understand how inner obstacles from our unprocessed pasts get in the way of us being real and being present and enjoying life.
It was so tragic and sad I was drawn back to it. I bought Torey Hayden's other book Ghost Girl as well but have yet to read it since I just bought a pile of books off Amazon. This well worth a read. Well written, down to earth, sad but well done.
