Summary
Sexual abuse of young girls is epidemic, but if the abuse can be processed when girls are still young (in their teens and early twenties) remarkable healing can take place. Invisible Girls weaves together powerful first-person narratives with gentle guidance and seasoned insights to help girls through the maze of feelings that swirl around the abuse experience
