“In this account, Kelly bravely speaks out about the silence, the secrecy and the confusion that child sexual assault survivors endure. The honesty in her writing may be challenging for some. Having worked in this area for over 15 years, I know that many find it difficult to understand the complexity of the impact of child sexual assault when the offender is someone that is loved, or the confusion children often experience from their bodies’ natural reaction to the sexual acts.
Kelly’s openness about these and other effects of the sexual assaults she endured is much-needed, to break through the still frequently taboo topic and the myths that surround it.”
