St his daughter I do have a better appreciation for the healing process that needs to occur to allow the victims to go on as well as all the bumps and barriers along the way I won t call this a good read I will say it was a worthwhile one thoughThis is a petty and minor criticism but I feel as if the cover art was deceitfulmisleading Not that it matters that Sophie was older when the abuse started perhaps it was designed to make a point But on some level after having read the book and having seen several others recommended to me on as a result of my purchase I wonder if this is a trendputting a young toddler or child on the cover because young toddlerschildren are by virtue sweet and innocent I don t know It ust bothers me and I m not sure why but it does I want to ask why this picture I wonder if putting a teen on the cover would lessen or at least dampen the awfulness on some subconscious level in the same way that the girl in a mini skirt is somehow a little responsible for the rape A voluptuous teen or even a not so voluptuous teen might not seem so innocentand that s kind of sad I *Don T Know Maybe * t know Maybe is ust me I absolutely loved this book It was inspirational to see how Sophie learnt to deal with her past and make it something that was part of her in a good way I can t fathom young children getting treated like they re absolutely nothing and like A Child Called It I became furious in some parts of the book I would definitely recommend reading this anyone whatsoever Another heart breaking memoir This time however the author has decided go a slightly different way route and starts the book when she is admitted to a mental health facility earlier story is interspersed with her current life in the facility and I found it worked well Sophie is such a strong person and luckily she had a group of really lovely and supportive friends and colleagues to help her out to.

Wever minute all the incredible I applaud the author StrongThis book lets you see how strong some people can be and it also makes you realize when you see people that are homeless you don t know their story a little kindness goes a long way and you might ust help that person This is a book about sexual abuse I fortunately have never been a victim of abuse person This is a book about sexual abuse I fortunately have never been a victim of abuse or otherwise and while I know it exists it s a topic I have a hard time wrapping my head aroundSophie was not only sexually abused in horrific ways she was abused by her father who also prostituted her out to his friends while he watched The book tells her story which details the abuse and also includes her years spent in mental institutions her use of cutting to dull the pain an oxymoron I knowbut apparently a truth the discovery of her sexuality and the long hard road that was her recoveryI am fascinated by why we do the crazy shit we do particularly the horrible awful unimaginable shit What goes wrong in a brain nature and nurture that a father not only abuses his daughter in order to fulfill some very weird perversions but also invites his friends to oin in And what type of grown men oin their friend in the sexual abuse of his daughter WhereWhenHow does that conversation even beginAnd if this happens in the UK where women are treated with respect and dignity at least in theory what the hell is going on around the world in these countries where women are openly regarded as property and not particularly valued propertyThe discussion and exploration of cutting was informative and fascinating I m generally familiar with what cutting isand of course I ve read Gillian Flynn s Sharp Objects but I hadn t really "HAD A TRUE SENSE OF THE DYNAMIC UNTIL READING "a true sense of the dynamic *Until Reading S Account *reading s account to say I still can t wrap my head around what happened to this girl I still can t imagine what drives a father biological or not to mole.

This book shocked me in places especially when sophie found out she had MS after all she had been and put herself through trying to recoverI am so out she had MS after all she had been and put herself through trying to recoverI am so that she seems to have come out the other side and not tlet that horrible man and men ruin her life completely Biography of the most brutal kind Depressing to think that this really happened to someone Amazing to think that someone could find a sense of balance and understanding about her past after experiencing such a godforsaken life Incredible Not really sure how to review thisrate someone s life story In terms of writing the book was done well It was easy to follow the events and when they happened and the style is clear and non fussy Sophie Andrews managed to tell her story without going off on too many rambles That said I read for entertainment and this was definitely not entertaining I found it really uncomfortable to read The descriptions of the child abuse were too graphic and I found myself trying to skim over them I get that it was all part of Andrews story but I don t really get why they had to be detailed in the book "Other Than That It Was "than that it was and a uick enough read Brilliant book insights and I admire her and would love to take the POSITIVE path she has We both have similar paths in out pasts Sophie Andrews tells the harrowing story of her life What she went through was heart breaking and on her father s part inhumane How parents can treat there children biologicaladopted in such ways astounds me and I have to force myself to believe it I could never put my own children through such hell A book worth reading All editing and writing comments I enjoyed this book As a mental health professional I it very real and honest as well as refreshing It is never easy to admit failure or lack of progress but mental health and addiction are wrought with both And that s OK It makes the successes ho.
