I never got a chance to read this one until lately, when a friend suggested it to me. But when I did, I was hooked. It is probably one of the saddest books I have ever read, and I read the entire thing in one sitting. It seems that it's always the true stories that are the most terrifying - real life is so much scarier than fiction. Has anyone read this one, and if so, what did you think? After reading it, did it give you a new perspective on the world, the way it did me? I don't think I ever really understood or quite believed in the extent of child abuse until I read this book.
