This book is a useful reference for survivors and their partners. It does give a lot of important resources at the back of the book as well. Laura Davis tackles the very emotionally charged issues around sexual abuse and its impact on adult relationships carefully and respectfully. It also challenges the common stereotypes that most abuse occurs with girls. This topic is never an easy one, and the book is organized as a "menu" so that you can target specifically an issue, or you can choose to read it front to back. There is a lot of information here. So, I would say use it as a resource, rather than a place to find out how the stories of the survivors and their partners documented here are a "fit" for someone you know or for your own experiences.
