A story of a little girl who dared to speak, and overcame her nightmare.
In a world less than perfect and unfortunate circumstances, children suffer from this act and go unheard. This story brought tears to my eyes and anger because of its reality. No child should suffer such an unspeakable act, but the truth is, it is happening and they are. Someone needs to be a voice, let it be known, make it stop one voice at a time. It may be an unbearable read to many, it may even hit home to others, but it is a reality and not speaking about it won't make it stop or go away. A true emotional read.

Listen, Just Once by A.R. Von
3 1/2 stars
This was such a sad story, understandable as it was based on a true story. This was a very realistic telling of a young girl that experienced abuse first hand, and told from the perspective of the girl at that age. It was well written, and yet felt to me more like it was written similar to how a person would write in their journal in a story-telling fashion.
I imagine that this was very healing for the author, or the person it was written about, and applaud the purpose. I only had a hard time getting into it because of how I felt like I was reading a friend's diary, and it was so sad, and horrible that any child should have to experience this or worse.
