More About This Book

Overview

The more I write about this the more emotional I get, but I keep going because I can't let it keep me in bondage anymore. I'm trying to help other families who might be going through this, or who have already been through this. It is never too late to get help. I could have died many times, but I survived. I survived it and my dad didn't win. I won, because I am still here to tell the story. That makes me a seuvivor. I was affraid to tell Child Protective Services about my dad becuase I knew they wouldn't believe me. He had so many people fooled — he would act nice around people, but when no one was around, we would get it. Then his drug and acohol abuse got worse, and he would start leaving for weeks at a time, which felt good — until he returned. Then it would start all over again. I have to say this to anybody who reads my book: "Don't be afraid to talk to someone about what's going on in your home. DOn't leave your abuser in control of your life, don't give them control.If there's anything you're feeling, write it down. Don't suffer the way my family and I did" It will benefit you in the end.

    Very Gut Wrenching Book

    This book takes you on a roller coaster ride into someone else's life and you feel the pain and emotions as if you were in her head during the time and living her life. You can't put the book down yet you're afraid to pick it up again and read the next chapter. At the end you feel so good that she came out a survivor and you want to tell her she will be alright, God is with you, you made it through, don't ever give up. It's really hard to believe someone lived through this to tell the story, it's so amazing.

    I would definitely recommend this book to a friend! My intention

    I would definitely recommend this book to a friend! My intentions was to read the book when I had any free time available(which is hardly never)...but before I knew it I was done with the book within the same day of purchasing it! This book takes you on a roller coaster ride while feeling so many different emotions!!Its one thing to read a non-fiction book but to know that this was a true story for any human being to experience the things that occured in this woman's life is beyond imaginable! Anywho,don't want to go into too many details,Love This Book!!
