This book shares a journey back to a childhood's memory of abuse. Although there are lighthearted moments throughout the book, most of the scenes portrayed are disturbing, yet keep you wanting to read more. The ending leads me to believe that there will be a sequel to this book. At least I hope so. I commend and thank the author for having the courage to share her story.Was this review helpful?

This is a book that documents the author's real-life childhood trauma. Telling her story serves the purpose of revealing, rather than concealing, the reality of universal human experience. I hope that readers will allow themselves to feel the pain they will feel as the author's experience resonates with their own.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Who among us didn't have physical, emotional, and/or sexual violence against us in our childhood? If we honestly answer this tough question, then we can get to how we individually address our history, our reality, in a way that helps us. If we turn portions of our reality into a fantasy, as the author did and so many authors do, how does that really help?
I applaud the author's effort, and hope that others will also write an autobiographical work that documents their personal feelings.
