My Recommendation

This is a powerful, yet raw, collection of individual experiences of rape culture.  It show how easily lives can be ruined at the hands of others - those who don't even realise they have done anything wrong. 

Sadly, I don’t believe this book will change the world but I do hope it encourages more people to talk about this painful subject which will, in time, bring about a much-needed change to todays world. 

I hope the book sends a message of hope for the future and I would recommend everyone should read this, regardless of gender.

I had a personal interest in reading this book as I was sexually assaulted a number of years ago.  Even now, I blame myself for being in that situation.  That event changed my life forever - I will never again go out alone after dark.  

Thank you to Roxane Gay and all contributors for bringing these stories together.  

Thank you to NetGalley and Atlantic Books for the opportunity to read and review this anthology prior to publication.
