5.0 out of 5 stars unbelievable but sadly true, 26 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Groomed: An uncle who went too far. A mother who didn't care. A little girl who waited for justice. (Kindle Edition)
I bought this book for kindle on 23rd June and read it on the 24th June. I could not put it down, its shocking and powerful. I admit to knowing the author and knew a bit of the history but couldn't believe how little I knew of what she went through. The book is harsh but loving in areas too. Lauries love for her sister shines through and she makes no excuses for the difficulties she experienced and had to deal with. She is brutaly honest about the relationship between the abuser and the abused, which I was surprised at. I did not understand that this "relationship" is built up and the child is often desperate for affection and the abuser recognises this and uses to their benefit. The little statements at the beginning of each chapter gives a hint of what is coming in the chapter and I imagine how Laurie felt. It is powerful and if I am honest scary that this still happens in society today. The fact that she now uses her own history to help others is a testimony to the strength that shines all through the book and I am proud to claim her as a friend.
