From Library Journal:

In this essential update of the 2005 edition, Feuereisen, a psychotherapist and the founder of GirlThrive, gives voice to victims of sexual abuse, no matter how young. The best way to heal, she advises, is to talk about it, as the more women and girls talk, the harder it will be to keep sexual abuses hidden. She primarily focuses on incest by abusive fathers, brothers, cousins, uncles, and stepfathers; breaches of trust in men like teachers, coaches, and clergy; acquaintance sexual abuse; and rape scenarios like stranger rape, gang rape, and date rape. The first-person accounts included in every chapter are graphic and grueling. This edition also includes coverage of sex trafficking and prostitution, resources for boys and men, and statistics that may horrify readers, including how 44 percent of rape victims are under 18 and that one out of four American girls will experience some sort of sexual abuse by 16. Verdict This manual is excellent because it is so specific in its advice. Feuereisen clearly shows survivors of sexual abuse how to begin the process of healing.-Linda Beck, Indian Valley P.L., Telford, PA (c) Copyright 2010.
