The girl in the book is a deeply personal story about a young woman who reclaims her body. Her voice, and ultimately her power. At first, she must grapple with disturbing memories from her childhood and their profound residual effects on her adult life. But she is eventually able to overcome her past and take control of her future. I intend for her victorious spirit to offer hope to all those with troubled pasts who must rise above them to live fulfilling lives.
