it was amazing
Read from January 13 to 19, 2012

Describing Daleen Berry's memoir leaves me at a bit of a loss for words. It's amazing, horrifying, and inspiring. It is a very serious subject matter and I found I had to take breaks from it yet I wanted to keep reading.

It's the story of a daughter of an alcoholic, a rape victim, a mother of four by age twenty-one, and a woman who finds a way to free herself. It's so hard for me imagine what she went through but she does a very good job of telling it. You root for her and learn from her. She's amazing in that she has the strength to tell this story.

After reading her book, I want to tell every young girl/woman I work with to "tell someone" and "it's not your fault".

I highly recommend this book to the regular reader and to those in counseling or who work with/around young girls.

Best wishes to Daleen and her new life!
