The day Andrew Madden was molested by his favorite priest, his love of the Catholic Church was poisoned. The abuse lasted for three years, until Andrew was fifteen, and its impact went on long after. Andrew lost direction, self-esteem, and the capacity to love. Eventually, he lost himself in drink. Altar Boy tells how Andrew found his way again. This candid and sometimes searing account of how abuse can affect a life also shows that victims don't have to remain victims.
