Editorial Reviews

"Annie O’Sullivan has looked evil in the face and lived to tell about it. Through her art, photos, and talented writing, she vividly shares her life of unrelenting sexual, physical, and emotional abuse. Other survivors will find hope in her ability to succeed against the odds. Every reader will gain an insight into this epidemic that plagues our society; therefore, having an awareness that may save a child from abuse . . . perhaps their own." —Brinda Carey, Advocate for Child Sexual Abuse Survivors; author, Don't Cry, Daddy's Here
