5 Stars! “Engaging Read!”
I designed this book’s cover, formatted it, and read it. I’m also an author and I recognize talented writing when I see it. This book engaged my emotions from the start until the last page. It is well-written, the characters are real and believable and the plot moves forward naturally, keeping the reader’s attention to the last.
I recommend Vindicating Vicky for anyone who is looking for a quality book and a talented author.

5 Stars! “Great Message!!!”
I really love reading books that convey a strong message, and this is one of those books. While the message isn't shoved down your throat every few pages the author has a unique way of telling a story but teaching you something at the same time.
Vindicating Vicky is the story of Vicky Lester, who, like so many people these days, had a very traumatic childhood which lead her into a lifestyle that most don't envision themselves in. The book kept me reading and kept me wanting to know if Vicky was able to find happiness after such a hard upbringing You will find yourself rooting for her throughout the book but where she ends up is one of those things that you'll have to read the book to find out! The book definitely had its graphic parts so I wouldn't recommend it for anyone under the age of 16 but I loved the story and the message!

5 Stars! “Victimizing Vicky”
Vindicating Vicky was an eye opening read for me. Not that I am unaware that these things happen but in my day these things were all “hush hush” not to be spoken of and certainly no young ladies would dress or behave as Vicky Lester does in this book! Now we as a society are more aware that young girls and boys are victimized every day and unfortunately when that is coupled with a family that is non-existent what is a child to do? This is the basic story of Vicky, who suffered terribly as a child and had no one to turn to. I don’t usually read books that are so graphic in their sexual content but I was intrigued by this young woman’s journey to find happiness. Well written book that will give you a different perspective on the “troubled teen”.

5 Stars! “Well written and engrossing read”
Vicky Lester, the main character in Vindicating Vicky by Ron Knight, is just trying to find happiness in life. Unfortunately she really doesn’t know what happiness is because she has never had it, far from it. She suffered through a very traumatic childhood which was compounded by others who took advantage of the fact that her mother was an alcoholic and really didn’t pay much attention to Vicky and a step father who was content “stay out of it” because his peace of mind was more important than protecting a young child. I am ashamed to say that I have always looked down upon young people who behave as Vicky does in this book without much consideration given to how or why they ended up behaving the way they do. But Vicky’s story has shed light on how difficult the world truly is for many children, and what is a child to do if they are not given love, attention, guidance and support? Well written and engrossing read.

4 Stars! “Worth Reading”
Vindicating Vicky by Ron Knight is the story of Vicky Lester, a young woman trying to find her way in the world after a traumatic and emotionally unfulfilling childhood. Without much support at home, Vicky strikes out on her own and soon finds that there are many challenges for her to face before she can change the course of her life.
This page turner is sexually graphic at times, but the author does an excellent job of developing the characters. Vicky is not someone I would usually find myself relating to or associating with, but I found myself rooting for her despite her socially unacceptable behavior. My only criticism is that I wished the author had elaborated on the reasons that Vicky's mother, Mary, was so distant and abusive. I look forward to reading more by this author in the future.
