Format: Paperback
Reading this book is like being inside Nikki’s head. Her writing style is honest and disturbing at times, a testament to not only what she has endured but also how difficult it must have been to write.

I had no idea what to expect from the book and I never thought I’d finish it in just a few days Although Washed Away is about championing the possibility of recovery, it’s my no means a self-help book. I’m not sure the world needs another one of those anyway. Often those of us with mental illness know deep down what steps need to be taken, but we just can’t imagine having the strength carry them out.

This book proves that we are indeed strong enough, and that even the darkest of times will lead to light.

5.0 out of 5 stars She tells it like it is 9 Nov. 2016
By Sarah - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have followed Nikki on social media for several years and have been inspired by her advocacy and life story, so when I found out she was writing a book, I couldn't wait to read it and learn more about her journey! Washed Away: From Darkness to Light is her memoir, and she details the many traumas she endured both as a child and as an adult working in the modeling industry. I could not be more impressed by her resilience and her ability to revisit her experiences with such grace. She tells it like it is; there's no way to just gloss over trauma and minimize it, but she writes in a way that evokes hope. I found myself rooting for her recovery as I read, and I couldn't put the book down!

People who have had similar experiences will surely find solidarity in her story, and those who have never experienced trauma will gain an understanding and sense of empathy for those who have endured difficulties like abuse, assault, eating disorders, and addictions. This book sheds a lot of light on the modeling and entertainment industries too, and is another reminder that "all that glitters is not gold." I've always heard of the pressures put on people in these industries, but reading Nikki's firsthand account was even more enlightening, and reminds me that there is still so much education and advocacy work to be done in every aspect of society.

Thank you for writing this book, Nikki, and blessings to you as you continue your journey and seek to help others through your story!

5.0 out of 5 stars Her honesty is more than admirable and she opens a window to what it is like dealing with mental health issues 31 Oct. 2016
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Nikki Dubose wrote this memoir with such integrity and heart. Her honesty is more than admirable and she opens a window to what it is like dealing with mental health issues. This memoir not only enlightens readers, but it serves as a beacon of hope for those who are struggling. Washed Away is a compelling read, and a true work of art. I hope everyone who reads walks away with a better understanding of eating disorders, mental, physical, and sexual abuse.

By D. Pear - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book was one of the bravest honest books I have read in a long time. I read the entire book in two days while on vacation. Many people can be helped by this story of overcoming abuse and mental health issues in the modeling industry.
