Trish has written this book from her heart with as much detail as possible. As easy as it would have been for her to leave a lot of the gory and embarrassing details out, she feels it is important that people understand exactly what sexual violence is, to understand this issue accurately in today’s world.

Content Warning

Please be advised that the contents of this book reveal intimate personal details about her experience as a survivor of an extremely violent sexual assault and rape. Themes mentioned in this book include sexual violence, rape, sexual acts, date rape, consent, suicide, mental health, pornography, drugs and alcohol use. Understandably, this can be very difficult to read and should only be read by mature audiences.

Language Warning

Trish claims to have a bit of a potty mouth, whilst there isn’t a lot of swearing, there are a few f bombs.
