This book is full of the first hand accounts of sexual abuse survivors of all ages, both male and female. We like to believe it doesn't happen but we all know it does. The accounts are unbelievable but true. It is incredibly hard to read but well worth it, especially for other survivors so they know that they are not alone. The author also does a wonderful job of describing the emotional reaction that is often exerienced in association with the event(s) later in life, sometimes without the victim even understanding why the reaction occurs. They may have an adverse reaction to a certain smell or touch. Also included is an explanation of the different ways the abused person copes, always making sure it is understood that nothing is the victim's fault whether they report the abuse or not. The main point that comes across loud and clear is that children of sexual abuse can go on to have normal productive and happy lives.
