Summary

This is a true story. It is my story. No one could have possibly created the contents of this book unless the incidents and occurrences were witnessed and lived. I did both. I lived 11 years of hell, and the perpetrators have never admitted to a single fault. To have endured these personal horrors and escaped without apparent mental impairment may well be a miracle in itself.

whiner

So much complaining and comparing herself to others. Professional victim. I kept hoping this book would get better, but it didn't. A real downer.

The other reviewers are right

This is an important story but the narrator is so full of self-pity and recrimination. She whines. The author was unhappy at her Catholic elementary so she allowed herself to be beguiled by two nuns into joining their order at before she turned 14. Her immigrant parents agreed and refused to listen to her older brothers and sisters that an American norm and raised child should at least finish what we now call middle school before joining a convent. Other things, she blames the convent for her weight problem even though she admits she was heavy bf going into convent. It’s all the fault of the convent. Clearly this was a very bad match but some blame goes to the parents who failed to protect her.
