This book comes out today.
It is beautiful and hopeful. Do yourself a favor and buy it. To be afraid to read about abuse only perpetuates the stigma and the silence.
It is a beautiful story with a happy ending since she survived !

You know I think that would depend.
She does talk about confronting her father, but if you're asking if there are graphic details, not much at all.

Take breaks when you read if you need them.
I think sometimes we give our fears a lot of power. It's a book. It can't hurt you.
I know triggers are real but think about it : you are safe, it's just a book and you are making steps towards healing by reading it.

There was also a documentary done a few years ago called Search for Angela Shelton. It was hard to watch, but worth it. My therapist lent it to me when I started my therapy. I wish I still had it.
