This is one of them storylines that I normally avoid. Child abuse. I know that it happens in real life all the time so I read fiction as a form of escapism. Having said that I'm glad I read this story. I do believe we all need to face reality now and again.
This is Violet Hoffmans story. She tells us of the raw pain and turmoil she goes through while being abused. She also lets us into her thoughts the years after being abused.
I can't say this is an enjoyable read due to the content. However it is an amazing insight into a young girls thoughts. It's really well written. A must read.
