Read in January, 2005

The early version of this book was excellent and held nothing back. However, due to the continued real life drama from Julie's mother, she was forced to edit out many of the gory, realistic details from latter versions of the book. The latter versions of this book still capture many of the horrors that this girl survived, however, it minimizes the full extent of her mothers illness. This has the potential to be a life changing book for anyone who reads and absorbs it. I was fortunate enough to get to know her on a personal level a few years ago, and she is one of the most down to earth, realistic, people out there. She does not gloss over child abuse, or pretend that it is possible to heal and start anew by age 25. This book is not for the faint of heart.

Reviews of this book have called it scattered and disorganized... guess what, that's how people who were severely abused as children write and think.
