Reviewer's comment:

This can be a hard read especcially if trauma is triggering for you, hearing these true stories are just heart breaking, but the silverlining is learning coping strategies and treatments for working through your own trauma, or be better at connecting with other people that may have been through traumatic experiences. I highly recommend reading this if you are a parent or if you are in the Child Protection or NDIS space, as a carer etc.
