A raw but beautiful tale of one girl’s journey back to herself after experiencing sexual assault

A raw but beautiful tale of one girl’s journey back to herself after experiencing sexual assault.
Grace is a survivor. She doesn’t remember her assailant, but all evidence points to the one person she thought she could trust. Then after the death of her father, things take a turn for the worse when her uncle abandons her to the foster care system and she’s left to pick up the pieces of her life all on her own.
Two years later, Grace returns to her uncle’s home and the scene of the assault, still unable to face what happened. With humility and a wicked sense of humor, Grace ultimately faces her demons and comes full circle.
A heartbreaking coming of age story that will have you reaching for the tissues one moment and laughing out loud the next.
