Everybody's Got a Story (2013)

Alexa is still struggling to move on after being assaulted by her ex-boyfriend Christophe, and who can blame her - no one should ever have to deal with that. His assault affects Alexa in every facet of her life, both work and personal. This was such a heart-breaking story and I could not help but feel absolutely saddened for Alexa and what she was dealing with, emotionally, mentally and physically. This book brought the long-lasting effects on victims of assault to the fore and the reality that the feeling of being a victim can, for some, last a lifetime. This book is a great read but not a light one. (KARM)
