This book really opened my eyes up to how a traumatic event can really change someone’s life and alter their personality. As Melinda unfolds the story of what happened to her, I constantly found myself struggling with her, wanting her to speak up for herself but knowing that she didn’t know where to go for help. If somebody is easily triggered I would warn them before picking this book up; however, for those who may not understand from a victim’s perspective what the pain may feel like, Anderson does a good way of explaining how Melinda’s life used to be before the event, and how it changed her perspective after it happened.
