This was a very hard book to read and it's even tougher to rate it. Written in a style that puts you in Jaycee's life as these events unfolded is disturbing to say the least. I honestly felt invaded myself as she described her abduction and her life afterwards. I think she is one of the bravest souls ever born into this world to have not only survived what she did but to speak of it as she does. I'm truly amazed by this child/woman. And I do believe that is who and what Jaycee is, she was never allowed to grow up or be herself, speak for herself or make her own decisions. What was done to her is beyond the imaagination of any normal human being. This is painful reading and yet so inspiring.
