The greatest joy, and sometimes the greatest challenge, of doing this work is walking my own talk. This isn't just about what you know and what you care about. It's about how you live your life.

An uplifting hopeful book about the human strength to overcome

This is an incredible little book. Not only are the illustrations both adorable and poignant, the sentiments expressed are accurate. Intensely accurate. If you know someone who has been sexually assaulted, or would like to know more of what it's all about, pick up this exquisite book

I thought I was losing my mind but after reading this amazing book I have realised that what I am feeling is natural and I have this book to fall back on when I wobble
