(Fluttert) keeps Kat’s trauma and her reluctance to speak at the center of her tale. The character of the abuser, Greg, always in control, stands out as highly realistic.
It's fiction based on Fluttert's own experience, written from the victim's perspective to help kids, parents and educators understand childhood sexual abuse. The story also empowers victims to take control...and explain how the crime of sexual abuse can happen, especially at a time when kids are so connected and open about their personal lives.
a work that can be recommended by guidance and counselling staff to students in this terrible situation.
Kat's emotional confusion, and the difficulty of turning from victim into survivor, is well portrayed...this novel will be a useful tool to open dialogue on a sensitive issue.
