I don't remember ever reading a t.c. written by the would-be victim before. The only story that comes close, that I remember, is a story whose title I can't remember that a women from here in Delaware wrote after being abducted and raped and her husband shot dead in her home. But to me that was more memoir than t.c. so it's different.
I can distinctly remember thinking before that I wouldn't mind reading a t.c. by someone intimately involved with the crime. Be careful what you wish for right?

This book is very unique in the sense that this isn't written by an author about a victim/killer, but by a would-be victim.

It was well written and was easy to follow but I honestly couldn't help but feel like there was something fake about the whole thing.

At first I was perplexed at how the story was actually sounding like a book not a crime novel. Realizing that the actual victim wrote the book it made more sense.

I give Brenda credit for still seeing the good out of all the horror she was put through. A true inspiration to humanity she is. Personally I would have up right killed him no explanation needed just boom dead.

Excellent read kept me and my friend entertained and wanting more all the way to the end.
