I cried nearly 20x between the absolute anger and disgust and the happiness and victories you feel while going on her life’s journey. I think this book would fall in the categories between The Glass Castle and Angela’s Ashes- also two very heartfelt reads. This is a phenomenally true testimony of child abuse not only recognizing the victim and perpetrators but also the family unit, support systems, legal services and the onlookers.
Good book overall. I did not like the specific writers style but it was a very “raw” read so I get it. Insightful in that you see the side of the survivors story in a different way than I have ever read. Honest and again raw, great book.
