What People Are Saying

Dave Ziegler
"While A Wallflower No More may be in some respects every traumatized woman's story of pain and betrayal, Jayne's response to her unsupportive world is unusual and exceptional. Because it is so extraordinary, this story is worth sharing with many other traumatized individuals."
