In his new book called "Lost Boy" the nephew of Warren Jeff (of the Fundamentalist Latter Day Saints Church) speaks out about his sexual abuse and that of other boys.

Learn more as he is interviewed on Fox News:

I'll be checking for a UK publisher of that book for sure. We have to remember clergy abuse didn't just happen in Catholic environments.

I found the video interview from here:

http://www.foxnews.com/search-results/m/22341356/lost-boy.htm#q=%22Lost+Boy%22+the+nephew+of+Warren+Jeff

I wish the book and interviewer didn't make it appear like a rare, attrocious event. The "Your story makes me want to cry.." sounds like it's a singular abusive family member. Society still prefers to pretend it's not half of us dealing with it as victims or spouses of.

Thanks for posting about this, SW.

There's a longer (39 min) and better balanced story on this on NPR:
