A well written journey of courage and endurance. Nonnie Jules gives us an insight into the reality of being in an abusive environment and the different ways that every individual deals with it. It explores the emotions of not only Maiya, the main character of the book but also that of the people whose lives she touched. We go on a difficult journey with the protagonist and deal with pain and acceptance through her. A brilliant book, well written and I would recommend it as a great read!
