Viral mom blogger Brooke Binkley tells her painful story about the domestic violence she endured while simultaneously becoming a public figure, and uses her story to highlight the many types of domestic violence that both victims and survivors experience.
On the outside, Brooke was the funny vlogger making moms laugh across the world, but behind closed doors, she was experiencing nearly every form of domestic violence that existed. In this painful memoir, she shares her experience with domestic violence and how she planned for six weeks to ultimately escape the abuse.
From her first domestic violence-related hospital visit to post-separation abuse, stalking and harassment, Brooke describes what it’s like to be the victim of domestic violence - the leading cause of injury to women - more than car accidents, muggings, and rapes combined. This book answers the nagging question: “How did someone once described as a ‘Firecracker’ become a victim of physical, financial, emotional, and sexual abuse?” and “Why did she stay?”
Seems the chapters cut out at the end before it’s over?
I love her and as a fellow survivor I was looking forward to listening to the book, but the chapters seemed like they weren’t fully recorded. They cut off and I feel like I missed out and wanted to know what happen to Arlo and other things in the book.
