The book tells the story of a group of women who are beginning to rebuild their lives after sexual abuse. The aim of the book is to help people better understand rape myths, dissociation, trauma and shame using the compassion and simplicity that comes with cartoons. The author’s hope is that it will help people understand the journey that someone who has experienced abuse needs to go on – whether that journey is their own journey or the journey of someone they love.
