    1. Julia Latchem-Smith has a very easy way about her and that flows directly into her writing. As hard as it is to read about the life of a child who was abused, in any manner at all, she makes it a lot easier for her readers. Luckily for Julia, her father has some type of control, granted it wasn't very much, and that makes this book slightly easier to read I think, especially for people unaccustomed to the mis-lit genre.That out there, it's still very hard because even though the author was never [...]


    2. Reading about Julia's experiences I was reminded of something that happened to a friend of mine while I was in middle school. The way Julia's revelation of sexual abuse was handled was very much the same way my friends was handled.I always knew my friends dad and grandma were on the strange side. Her dad had even told me once that I had a nice ass, I was only 12. I knew something was up and for years had asked my friend to tell me. One day as I was walking in the school hall on my way to class w [...]


    3. When I think of the fact that the incidents and events in this book had happened in real life, it gave me shivers. There are a few events mentioned in the book because of which I felt really sad for Julia and the way she was harrased by her own father (that was both saddening and disgusting to hear at the same time). Though the book deviated from the main theme at places, it wasn't disappointing.


    4. To be honest with everyone, I read this book in the Dutch translation. And I thought some stuff was translated very badly. I think I should have read it in English to like it better. It's a thin book, which is already great cause I can take it with me to work and school. It's a very easy read. the following parts can contain spoilers.And I think everyone should read it. But I feel like it could have been written better. (I don't know if it's the translated version I read or the original version [...]


    5. Ik lees altijd graag waargebeurde verhalen. Ik wil weten wat er in de wereld gebeurt en wat het met mensen doet. Het zijn boeken, die iets met mij doen. Vaak ben ik perplex na het lezen van zo'n boek. Zo ook dit boek Ik vind het echt zo onbegrijpelijk, dat een vader dit zijn bloedeigen kind aan kan doen. Bij bepaalde hoofdstukken, waarin precies beschreven werd hoe hij haar misbruikte en wat hij met haar deed, liepen de rillingen over mijn lijf en één keer heb ik het boek ook echt naast me moe [...]


    6. This is the first book I have read like this,and there is something quite chilling about reading about something that someone has actual had to go through. It's another when you know it is just a story, but to know this was real was something else. Some parts I found extremely difficult to read, simply because of the nature and what this poor women went through as a child. So I did find myself simply skimming those parts, so I got the picture but didn't dwell on the actions for too long. It is a [...]


    7. I was not overly impressed by her writing style.I really got into the first half of the book, but just had a hard time getting through the second half. I feel so sorry for her to have to have been put through what her father had put her through. I do think once she got out of the house she should not under any situation have gone back. Maybe she was confused but she was also old enough to know it was wrong at that point. This was not ages ago when everyone ignored thingss such as this. She did t [...]


    8. It isn't your usual sad story of a novel, but it will bring a tear to your eye. Authour Julia Latchem, shares a sad but inspring biography of her life, Growing up with a rapist father and a strict mother who wouldn't listen to a word she says, this little girl feels alone. Instead of ending it with the usual run away free ending, Julia takes it to the next level talking about growing up and taking back her dignity.


    9. This book was read by staff member Carol Mitchell as part of the Six Book Challenge - here is her review:"Heart-wrenching but uplifting. This is the brave story of Julia (the author) who from 8 to 13 years old was sexually abused by her father. It tells of her struggle to understand and confront what happened to her. Fighting against family loyalty, seeing her father charge for his crime and moving on from her painful past. A difficult book to read but compeling with lots of emotion."


    10. Bellissimo non per l'argomento ma per la forza che Julia ha avuto nel tirare fuori tutta la verità e di accusare suo padre nonostante la sua famiglia non la credesseritto benissimo e scorrevole e alla fine lascia la speranza di potercela fare a superare certe cose solo con la forza di volontàco che mi ha lasciato:SPERANZA!


    11. Ingrijpend om te lezen hoe de samenleving omgaat met kindermisbruik. Als een kind aangifte doet van misbruik en het dan "opeens"toch weer gaat intrekken dan moet er een belletje gaan rinkelen bij de politie, ze moeten dan verder onderzoek gaan doen. Tegenwoordig is het steeds meer in de openbaarheid gekomen en er zijn diverse instanties die zich ermee bezig houden.


    12. I can't believe this girl survived her life. Having one abusive parent would be horrifying, but two is even worse. Totally hard book to read due to the content and due to the fact that I've had too many friends who had to go through this kind of awful childhood.


    13. This is one of my favourite books ever. The main character is honestly a strong and amazing human being. This is such a powerful book about trusting children and how children can get abused and still never believed.


    14. Het boek in een paar dagen uitgelezen. Heb al meer van dit soort boeken gelezen en telkens verontwaardigd dat zulke dingen gebeuren. Gewoon te walgelijk voor woorden. Het is zeker wel een boek wat je gelezen moet hebben.









    15. A great insight into the mind of girl who had been abused by her father.Some parts really horrified me, but was overall an empowering book in the end.




    16. If you can handle the topic of Child Abuse then this is a must read. Written by someone who went to hell and back it is riveting.


    17. I thought this book was extremely good, although very upsetting! I did feel it dragged out with the constant telling and stopping etc but it was worth it!


    18. I loved this book, the way it was written, the absolute honesty. It was beautiful, and breathtaking and awful. But I completely identified with everything that Julia went through.
