This book review is more about how the book is written than what the story is about. If you are more interested in what than how I would advise you to just buy the book and read what’s written on the back cover.
This is this book’s strength and that’s why you should buy and read it!
I don’t think that you would regret it.
More than half of the book is basically a prologue describing Kacey Kells’s upbringing; her childhood and the steps into the teenage world. Both everyday events and serious family crises is very thoroughly described. She has a liberating easy way to tell her story and imperceptibly you get dragged into her world.
I am normally a very fast reader, but when I read this story my thoughts constantly wandered to my own childhood and youth, to my son and to two little girls and a boy that I was the stepfather for in nearly a decade.
Slowly, without noticing,
I became a part of the book myself …
Kacey Kells’s «Warning to the reader», an unique way of expressing herself, is the start of the really ugly and mean part of the book!
This part is not an unusual story; I have friends who have had the same experiences, so it came totally as a chock to me when I became filled with rage and anger!
So angry that I couldn’t read more for a long time …
A lot of thoughts, and they were not pleasant, flew through my brain.
In many ways Kacey Kells makes her story to everyone’s story.
This is this book’s strength
and that’s why you should buy and read it!
Let me add, and this stands out as my personal opinion; It is the time after the rape that is the worst, not the rape itself …
