A strong woman!!
I was surprised by the horror she has survived, and it was difficult to listen to those parts, just because they are so horrific. But her rise is inspiring. Can’t wait to see what she does next!

Small book, but big message
There isn't a lot of depth here, but I'm glad I read it. She's not that old to have a lifetime of history, but her account of what she went through in high school is traumatic to read about. It's heartbreaking what her and her family had to endured. Which a lot of it they didn't know about at the time. But I think that is the message here. It's not her lifetime autobiography but more about her power to overcome a really horrific experience and how she found the one thing to help her cope. She wrote her story to encourage others. I wish her well and admire her courage to speak out!!
