Well the lady who wrote the book says expats call it the playpen. All the more reason not to even bother with her "book." Read Off the Rails instead!

Arguably one of the more disturbing books one could come across. Terribly written too.

The Gilboa creep works some kids drum class thing now in another country. I certainly wouldn't have him working anywhere near kids.
