I am in awe of the courage demonstrated by Taylor, not just for writing the story so totally honestly and in such personal detail, but for surviving such a horrific, period of sustained, sexual, physical and psychological abuse. To read the details are very difficult although necessary to truly understand what she went through and that began at such a very, young age.
It made my heart ache for the little girl and made me desperate for a happy ending but this story is the reality of the effects of horrific abuse which are made all the more worse for the total lack of intervention by anyone at all to help a vulnerable, defenceless child.
The actions and reactions of others are painfully described in this book and will make you shake your head that people can be so very, very cruel and be prepared to look the other way for themselves alone.
This book has left me wanting to reach out to Taylor to thank her for speaking out so courageously and for her efforts to raise awareness of the effects of child abuse. Hopefully it will help others understand we simply cannot look the other way. Praise to Taylor Fulks on such an honest account and for her amazing courage in surviving and sharing her story.
I could not understand how her mother lived with her conscience day in and day out knowing there was a paedophile in their home. Okay, so she booted him out but she took him back again, opening up a living hell on earth again for her little girl... and then to point the finger of blame at HER and not the abuser! Oh, that's not the half of it - wait until you read it! I was half way through the novel wondering when and if Taylor would ever be free of the abuse which came in several forms from many different people over time.Read more ›
As a youngster she was subjected to horrendous physical and sexual abuse by someone close to her and with the full knowledge of the one person who should have protected her and provided a safe haven, her mother.
She tells the story of her tortuous childhood and adolescence in a warts and all, no holds barred fashion which is dark, harrowing and haunting but utterly compelling at the same time.
She endured a nightmare journey from childhood to womanhood where she finally and deservedly found her `Someplace Normal'
