Well, this was an exceedingly difficult and uncomfortable read. Lovelace holds nothing back. Her story is extremely graphic, unrelenting and horrendous. But, it's an important book because she got to tell her side of the experience. Not for the squeamish, not for the prudish, not for the faint of heart, this book is not for anyone unless you really want to know. I'm giving it four stars because I think the book has value, but it was tough to get all the way through to the end, and believe me it is not for everyone.
