Good content - very poorly written. The author experienced sexual harassment as a student at SFP. As a teacher at SFP 20 years later, she saw how the administration effectively covered it all up for decades. The story leaves you shaking your head, wondering how it went on as long as it did. The Author deserves much credit for bringing the abuse at SFP to light. But she is not an "investigative journalist" and because this is her story and because she's so angry about it all, she comes off as a man-hating, church-hating (even though sexual abuse happens in every organized religion) liberal who "just likes to write". This book would be more effective written by a professional.
