Rating: 8 out of 10
Another book based on a real-life event, this was a difficult read for me. It is a memoir of a child being taken advantage of as a child by her own father. She removes the mask, revealing her childhood horrors, an event that changed her life completely and the ultimate betrayal of a mother.
Toni survived death at a young age due to having a forced late abortion. When she tried to reach out to others for help, she was rejected and judged by those who she believed would help her out of the hell she was living.
Even in her adult years, she struggles to come to terms with the past and quieten the little voice of the girl who feels insecurities, pain and betrayal.
This book really brings forth the message that not everyone you have close to you can be trusted. Not everyone is a friend, even if they are family.
