Mr. Stephen Pacheco has captured the passion of a young girls experience through life. Not only did the character pull you into the depths of his/her mind it brought to his/her very soul. The experience of oppression of everyday life, family, country etc. is powerful throughout the book. I look forward to reading the works of Mr. Pacheco. I encourage all to read this book.

It's Existentialism, It's American I think the review inside says it all: The Girl: A Journey in Memories Through the Self is a chilling tract challenging not only the ills of our times but also those throughout history. Not since Sartre and Derrida has there been such a thought-provoking work redressing the cycles and perplexities of social oppression. A tragic story of a disturbed, radical young girl, told through the eyes of the father, author Stephan Pacheco rattles the foundations of our long-held institutions. A gritty and bloody no-holds barred slap in the face to the self-delusional idolatry and manifestations of our times. A must read. The next two are supposed to complete the thought. I look forward to what others thought of this book.

I've seen reviews where Humans think this book is about a girl. And they try to make it about that. Which just shows what this Author is trying to overcome. It's the real display of the insecurity he's talking about. This book is about a Human, that doesn't care that she's a girl. It's about no pride. It's about being alive and literally searching for Enlightenment, free from everything that holds a Human into being a thing. Whatever that "thing" is. This book isn't about pleasing us, it's about facing reality, real reality, and being pleased with that. The way it is. Knowing identity, but letting it go from everything. It's a real mind of real Enlightenment. When you read his controversial works and they make you happy and not offended, then you've done your job as a reader, and as a free Human.

She's tough. And it's not about making you comfortable. The reader isn't given the depth. I think the Author wants the reader to put it there. To see it. I think you win the meaning of the book when you realize it. I recommend the Author's second book, Zarat: Notes of the Becoming. And then you start, just start I think, to understand what this book or series of books is about. And it seems like there's another one that the Author's working on. It's interesting.
