This is one of the most incredible non-fiction books I have ever read. I had to continuously remind myself that this is a TRUE story.

The title speaks for itself, but essentially, this is a story of a woman (Karen) and her therapist (Dr. Baer) discovering that she has 17 separate personalities and innumerable events from her life that she has no memory of. You go through the therapeutic process with Karen and Dr. Baer and learn of the utterly horrific events that lead to Karen's dissociative identity disorder/multiple personality disorder.

I am very thankful that Karen and Dr. Baer created this book so that others can be aware of this disorder and monstrous things that people do to children that can bring it about. It is any eye-opening book. I would recommend this to practically everyone I know.
