The author has a nice writing style. However, I found the person she portrayed herself to be very difficult to like or take seriously. She wanted sympathy and others to be outraged over her rape, which is valid, but some of her actions were so contradictory that it tainted the overall message. She talks about the rape and as a reader you do want her to be comforted. Next chapter she is flaunting her body by skinnydipping with strange men and becoming offended when someone calls her out on it. Also,sending innuendo texts to a fellow hiker she is attracted to and answering the motel room in nothing but a towel when he arrives seemed an odd choice for a rape survivor. I expected someone as traumatized as she wants us to believe she is to have been a little more mature when it came to the situations she placed herself in along the trail.
