Awesome Memoir!!! 
I disappeared into her world!

This book will make you cry. It will make you get angry and feel sorrow. This book will also bring you a feeling of hope and inspiration.

What a brave woman this author is-to relive these terrible acts all over again as she wrote her memoir.

The minute I started reading this book, the world disappeared. I can not wait to see if she comes up with a sequel to find out more of "where she is now".

The strength of Mrs. Johnson is astounding!

This is one that I stumbled upon by accident, but it was definitely considered a good accident.

This book was a real eye-opener for me. I have not been gifted with a life of pleasure and smooth sailing, but compared to this young woman, it changed my outlook. There’s always someone who has it worse than I do. I have had it quite easy compared to Mrs. Johnson. I had never even seen this closely into a situation of that nature, but reading this, I felt her pain.

The words she poured out were the equivalent of blood and tears, though from the memoir, she’s shed enough of them already. I salute this woman for being strong, persistent, and respectable.
