Out Of Orange by Cleary Wolters
I find Piper’s story interesting having followed it on Netflix (even though I am sure they took fictional liberties and there is much in the series I could have done without but I did like the story line if that makes sense). I admit I have not read Orange is the New Black. ~Sheila
You may have heard of Orange Is The New Black. The true story of an upper middle class girl names Piper Chapman who was sentenced to serve 15 months in a federal prison for drug smuggling with her former girlfriend Alex Vause. Piper, who was now years separated from Alex and happily engaged is about to do her time.
Out Of Orange is Alex’s side of the story. The background story of how she became involved in drug smuggling and how she met Piper.
I found Out Of Orange to be interesting. Having followed Piper’s side of the story it was interesting to hear Alex’s. As I listened to this one on audio, narrator Barbara Rosenblat had just the right style for Alex, raspy voiced and self-assured with a kick of humor. Learning how Alex became involved in drug smuggling was a subject I knew little (nothing!) about. What a frightening and fascinating world she lived in!
If you liked Piper’s story, or are a fan of the Netflix series, I think you would appreciate this story. Recommended on audio.
