This is a brave, raw and fascinating memoir. This is the kind of book that will be passed around from teen girl to teen girl and checked out of every school library.

A brave book. I received a free copy of this book, and did not know what to expect. It is a brutal and horrific memoir, and there are no doubt many trigger warnings attached to it. I have read through some of the reviews, and many talk about the horrific cult-like 'rehab' program. The takeaway fo...
