Spilled Milk Reviews
I picked this book to primarily understand what can go in a sexually abused person's life and for that purpose, this book does have some new and interesting insights. But, the narration style was lacking.
Just finished the book "Spilled Milk". It is a very readable story and has a very powerful message which is very timely in view of current events. I highly recommend it!
This story is about a survivor rather than a victim. It should be ready by anyone in the field of social services. Terribly sad, but well worth the read!
I thought the book description gave the book away but it did not. Even though the book is about horrible life experiences, I came away feeling informed and inspired. 👍🏽👍🏽

My 15 yo read this and told me I should read it. I was hesitant because of the subject matter but also wanted to be able to discuss with her.

Unbelievable resiliency displayed throughout this book. Thanks for the courage of the author to write this book.
I'm going to dnf this book. My heart just can't take it.
