Disgusting--how disturbed. The poor boy will never be the same. I was sick to my stomach reading it. And at the end the 13 year old girl who is repeatedly raped by her 26 year old husband. What a world we live in.

This is one book I could have written, since so much is like what happened to me. The author starts out with the circumstances of his having been raped at age 16. The book then goes into his life leading up to that point, and then after that point.
