This is my personal story. It explains my abusive childhood; how I perpetuated the cycle of abuse and more.

Without spoiling my book, it's a quick read. The book consists mainly of journal and blog entries, as well as some letters. It's raw, unashamed. It may not ever be considered a great piece of literature, but I pray that it inspires and encourages others as we go through the trials and tribulations that life throws us.
