Hard to put down, kept having to turn the pages. A true story that shows resilience of human spirit and how trauma and adversity made this young woman both strong and broken at the same time. Am so glad she found her way through it to lead a happy and meaningful adult life. The cruelty of adults never ceases to amaze me. The inner strength of this young woman and her storytelling ability as an adult is amazing. I will never forget the conversation about "Where do butterflies go when it rains?"
