It's hard to rate a book that deals with such a heavy topic. Unfortunately it's also a topic that's more common than most people think. While this read has to do with heavy topics, triggers, trauma and everything that comes along with it... it's also a book about healing and I think changing the narrative and giving people hope that they can heal from something like this is incredibly important.

This is a book that deals with a challenging subject matter, and so it's important to check trigger warnings before reading. 

The author navigated this book's tough subject matter well, and she crafted a beautiful story taking the readers through Matty's decade-long journey of healing. Despite the long time period this novel covered, I stayed engaged and rooting for Matty for the majority of the novel. The first part was the hardest to get through (both because of pace and content), and I am curious what further details we get on Matty and her story in the sequel.

8/10! Amazing book I loved it. Once I really got into it I couldn’t put it down. I was disappointed there wasn’t much of a reunion with Matty and her parents. I felt that was a bit disappointing. I want to know more about how Matty moves on and her future. I am so excited for book two! And the view it’s going to be.

This is a tough subject. A woman who was raped as a teenager and never told anyone. She disassociates and tries to forget but deals with frequent triggers so with her therapist she is trying to heal. The second half of the book deals with her healing journey

I really, really enjoyed this book! It was captivating and it hooked me from the very first chapter! It had its slow moments, but for the most part I really enjoyed!
