Kellcey is a coming of age/survival memoir that reads like a personal diary or journal.

Realistic and heartbreaking, it tells of what can happen to any of us: sisters, our daughters, or friends if we find ourselves in the wrong social situation with the wrong people.

Life portrayed initially in Vancouver was like any young woman might share, friendships, school, weekends away at the beach, fashion and a love for music. Loss of her sister in a tragic accident, then the unraveling of her parent’s

A very good book about a key social issue; well written, compelling and at times disturbing. Everybody, men and women, should read it to figure out what it is to be a victim... A must Read +++

“Kellcey” by Kacey Kells is an honest and bravely written memoir. The writer drew me into her world with each passing chapter. I loved how she described the scenery /places in Victoria BC and when she finally arrived in London. The chapters when she was describing what happened that horrific night, I couldn’t help but feel angry and somewhat transported in the moment, it felt really real to me. I pray and hope those guys get what’s coming to them!!! Because believe me, it’s coming! She described ...more

The heart breaking story of Kacey keeps you hooked but the length of the book might just turn you off. The author is fearless and courageous to come out so openly and talk about mental health issues, depression, loneliness and sexual assault. The themes of the book are as compelling as the story line, but what failed me in the book was the editing style. It was unnaturally prolonged and I feel it could have been cut short. The writing style is however quite realistic and the story keeps you ...more

I just finished reading Kellcey, by Kacey Kells. This book is an important contribution to the MeToo movement and should be required reading for every high school senior or college freshman.

Kells describes an idyllic childhood transformed by tragedy that affects each family member in profound ways. Filled with loneliness and often isolated, Kellcey turns to a relationship with an older boy of whom her mother approves. Unfortunately, Ben’s friend, John, makes crude remarks around Kellcey and Ben

First, of all let me start off by saying this-if this memoir by Ms. Kells does not make you think about our culture today or turn your stomach I wonder if anything will.
Ms. Kells, tells a difficult story very well. Very few people I know truly has the courage to tell the rest of the world what happened. Very courageous and very inspiring indeed.
I read the entire story in one setting as I do most of the books I read. I cannot tell you how many times I felt bad and wanted to cry based on what I

It is difficult enough to be a ‘normal’ teenager, however, when tragedy strikes in the form of the death of your closest friend and mentor,your sibling,it’s unimaginable. Now,compound that life altering tragedy with emotional abuse and,even more,inconceivable,a brutal sexual assault,what you are left with is how the hell or where the hell does one so young go from there? Incredible writing for one so young (apologies if it appears condescendingIT’S NOT MEANT TO BE)! Kellc grabs your attention

I accidently deleted my last review. This story was beautifully and well written, and took a lot of courage for her to tell her story. It is a topic that happens way too much and its a shame. We are never victims, only strong, brave, survivors.

A must read for everyone, male and female, age 16 and up

The author has presented her story with a unique writing style that I appreciate. Her story needs to be read by everyone. Ignore the fact that the small press who published her book didn't do anything regarding syntax, punctuation, etc. I cannot sing this book because all should read it and the fact that the author could write her story, that alone makes it a compelling five star read! Kacey lost her elder sister to a MVA in which the

Kellcey is a highly emotive and thought-provoking read that readily drew me in and held my interest throughout. Although it is classed as fiction in the book’s front matter, and states that the names, characters, places and incidents originate from the author’s imagination, the whole story comes across as very real – and totally heartbreaking at times.
Ms Kells tells a story that countless women worldwide could relate to. I can only imagine how difficult it must have been for her to write some of
