Synopsis

The critically acclaimed memoir from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Lovely Bones In a memoir hailed for its searing candor and wit, Alice Sebold reveals how her life was utterly transformed when, as an eighteen-year-old college freshman, she was brutally raped and beaten in a park near campus. What propels this chronicle of her recovery is Sebold's indomitable spirit - as she struggles for understanding; as her dazed family and friends sometimes bungle their efforts to provide comfort and support; and as, ultimately, she triumphs, managing through grit and coincidence to help secure her attacker's arrest and conviction. In a narrative by turns disturbing, thrilling, and inspiring, Alice Sebold illuminates the experience of a trauma victim even as she imparts wisdom profoundly hard-won: "You save yourself or remain unsaved."

A very good book that requires a very strong stomache in the begining. This book wastes no time about jumping into the horrific story of her rape. However the strength that is evident through out this novel is amazing! It struck a cord within me that I am sure will strike within every reader also.
