Beautiful Justice by Brooke Axtell

At just seven, the author was raped by her manny and then trafficked by him, selling her to other men. Because of her experience, her self-esteem was very low and she made some poor choices and eventually had to escape from a domestic violence situation. Beautiful Justice is written primarily to survivors of gender violence. Throughout the book, she tells her story and talks about how she has healed from the abuse. She gives concrete examples and ideas on how other survivors can heal as well. Her path to healing involved a lot of new agey sorts of things, but is clear that her path is hers and others paths do not have to look like hers. This book is well written. It reads fast and gets right to the point. I strongly recommend it to survivors of all kinds of gender violence looking for help on their path to healing.
