Can't remember much of the book but my ratings have always been based on fairness and likability for me, so the book have been on of those 'on the fence' type novels for me. As I usually rate them three stars.
This movie was absolutely disgusting! Next thing you know they're having an affair and her father finds out, gets his license plate number number and tells him my daughter's 16!
He goes on trial goes to court for statutory rape, NOOO let's roll it back a bit! FIRST of all when he's on the stand they asked him well you didn't think it was suspicious when the waiter asked her for her ID he said of course not, because she presented her ID as 21 and bought the drink! That right there there should not have been a movie based on this!
It was just really disgusting and stupid! This should have never went to trial! When they were at dinner he looked at her she gave the waiter the ID right there so he should have had no doubt in his mind that she was legal age I love Barry Bostwick, but this movie absolutely stunk.
Go after the real Predators out here that does know the age of the young girls and don't care,not someone who was tricked into thinking the girl was 21!
Need I reiterate they met at a down bar and then he went to see her on a college campus. Having read all her books before. You've read the top international reviews. Customers who viewed this item also viewed. What other items do customers buy after viewing this item?

I did appreciate that she made a point that there are other types of incest or incestuous behavior that does not involve penetration or inappropriate touching, but any behavior that makes the victim feel unsafe, uncomfortable, or harms their development. Voyeurism spying on a victim in private areas, such as a bedroom or bathroom , masturbating in front of a child, exposing them to pornography, making sexually suggestive or explicit remarks, or taking photos of a child while they are changing clothes, showering, etc or getting them to pose for suggestive photos is all a form of sexual abuse, which she refers to as psychological incest.
Emotional or covert incest, which doesn't involve anything sexual at all but pushes a child into an adult role on an emotional level children in these instances often become partners for a parent, such as a confidant or just takes the place of the parent in a non-sexual way can be just as damaging as actual incest.
I want to pay particular attention to father-son incest, which is still one of the most under-reported. Again, the author does devote a brief chapter to this particular subject, but the motivation and psychological aspect of the perpetrator is lacking. After doing some of my own research, there is some validity to my earlier mention that there are parallels between father-son incest and father-daughter incest; many of the fathers are domineering, who often push their wives into a secondary role rather than that of an equal partner.
Again, the incest aggressor is motivated by a need for control and dominance stemming from their own feelings of inferiority, perhaps due to their own abusive pasts or a dominating mother , but sometimes abuse their sons sexually due to unresolved feelings about their own sexuality. Many of these fathers express homophobia, due to their own self-hatred, or because they view that what they do with their sons has nothing to do with homosexuality.
The myths about this particular form of incest in some ways, makes it even harder for a victim to come forward. Being molested by a parent of the same sex has its own devastating effects, because the victims hate part of themselves as much as they do their role model, while desperately wanting the parent's love and approval. Many incest survivors carry the scars they suffer into adulthood and this can have a profound affect on how they view the rest of the world and how they function in it.
Because the people who were supposed to love them and in some situations, protect them betrayed them on the deepest, most profound level, it makes trust and any concept of being "normal" seem impossible.
But books like this show that there is healing, and help available. If you are a survivor of incest, or sexual abuse,or any form of abuse, please know that you don't have to live with the pain and trauma for the rest of your life. You are worthy, and you deserve to have peace and happiness. Still in print after almost 40 years. Still searing and unfortunately relevant.

In general, I'm not a big fan of reading books that are a non-fiction based book ABOUT a sole topic, containing real stories from those with some kind of experience with the topic.
This book is not much different. Although the seriousness of the topic does make it a bit different than the others i have read, it doesn't change the fact that the COUNTLESS recollections before a point is made does make the book a bit slow to read.
