I really enjoyed this book. It kept me engaged from the start I couldn't stop reading it and was done within a day. I loved that it told a personal story so that the reader can understand the child's point of view.

From the start, Karen builds up her story of how truly important parents are in the life of a child. And how that impacts a child throughout their life. This book also shows you that no matter what you've been through, you can be a better person from it. That time heals everything! And through your pain, you will find your true self deep within. No matter what situation you are in, you can make it out!

This book is a great read so you should definitely buy it. It reaches an audience that can identify having strain relationships with parents. It helps you understand things that probably didn’t make sense at the time, or if you’re currently dealing with this type of abuse, and just lets you know you’re not alone.
— Ashley S.
