" A practical and powerful must-read book for all who have suffered childhood sexual abuse, their family members and loved ones, and for all mental health professionals." Harold H. Bloomfield, M.D.Author of MAKING PEACE WITH YOUR PARENTSAs a trained therapist and sufferer of sexual abuse herself, Beverly Engel knows that there is probably no trauma a child can suffer that makes her or him feel more alone than sexual abuse. This helpful book offers hope for recovery with exercises, visualizations, and techniques that support you through a seven-step program, that will aid you in: facing the truth, releasing your anger, confronting those responsible with facts and feelings, forgiving yourself, and more healing advice and information.

YA-- Two books, intended for victims of childhood sexual abuse, with different approaches. Step on a Crack is written in first person and tells a narrative horror story that is interspersed with sections of letters to the abused offering advice and counsel. The Right to Innocence is more in the style of a self-help manual. It includes a chapter for the mates and loved ones of survivors. Camille's book is more thorough and specific, while Engel's book is good as a general overview of the subject. Both books conclude with a resource/bibliography section that provides a good beginning for more information and help.-- Carolyn Henebry, Episcopal High School, Bellaire, Tex.
