Goodreads Book Blurb:
Such a powerful, emotional read. Miller steps forward, reveals her name, and lays bare everything that happened in the most traumatic moment of her life and in the heartbreaking aftermath. It was an absolute privilege to be invited into her world and her experience.
Miller writes her story with bare honesty, every nerve raw and exposed from page one. Her writing is sophisticated and emotionally intelligent. She shares every aspect of her experience, shining light on the inadequacies of the legal system and the way survivors of sexual assault are treated and supported. I honestly cannot believe how little information she was given from the first moment she woke up in the hospital. And then to only learn the details of what happened through a news report she stumbled upon while at work? It literally blew my mind.
Every woman can relate in some way to Miller’s story. We all fall somewhere on the scale, be it the assumptions made by others, the scrutiny of the decisions we make and the emotions we show, the catcalls and verbal abuse we invite by walking down the street, all the way to the blame we are given for other’s chosen actions against us and our bodies.
Please read this book. It is important. I wish it weren’t necessary but, sadly, in 2021 it still is.
