Chanel’s story has captured the eye of the nation and has further uncovered the vile lack of justice that exists when rape and sexual assault occur (to this day, we still have prominent news outlets referring to Turner as the “Stanford Swimmer”). But I think memoirs like this have taken the narrative by the hand and guided it in a direction that it should be going. Chanel is not nameless. She’s not faceless.

This is the memoir of the woman who was raped by Brock Turner. She remained anonymous in the initial report but now she has come forward not just with a name but also with a story.

I think I need to read this.

I still remember reading her statement back in 2016 and the feelings it evoked so I cannot even imagine how much more powerful and impactful this would be

I know this won't be an easy read but I have to read this. I still saw articles yesterday when this book was announced titled stuff like "Victim of Stanford swimmer Brock Turner" so I've made it my life goal to be Philip DeFranco and relentlessly say "convicted rapist" and "Brock Turner" as frequently in the same sentence as possible. We need to remember her name. Chanel Miller. Remember it.

This isn’t out yet but I will be reading it on the release date. I was sobbing at work for Chanel’s victim statement to her rapist and I absolutely cannot wait to cry more for this amazing woman.

Clear-eyed, funny, essential account from a woman you'd be lucky to call a friend.
