Review: Survivor by Maka Neese is a powerful little book. It is about a little girls struggle after her grandfather molests her. This little novella is something that brings awareness to child molestation and rape. It is a quick read and really brings home the fact that no one should be scared to speak up for him or herself on this matter. Noella is a role model for women/men everywhere for her strength of character, and I commend the author for writing her story.
In addition, the grammar is off, but it does not really take away from the powerful message of this book.
So, it’s 4 out of 5 stars for Survivor. A little book that brings awareness to a big issue!
