This book made me angry.

Faking Normal - Courtney C. Stevens

This book made me really angry.

 

There's a lot to say about this, but it's not an easy book to digest. I need a lot of time to think about this.

 

But one thing is for sure: I believe it really portrayed the emotional trauma some girls go through once they're raped - that inability to cry out, that inability, due to being made to feel powerless, to say no, and that fear everything will change once word of it gets out. It made me really angry, and it made me feel I was in their shoes, and it's such a crappy, crappy feeling.

 

Sigh. It'll take a while for me to review this. I need to gather my thoughts.
