I am a victim. I have no qualms with this word, only with the idea that it is all that I am.

Known to the world only as Emily Doe when she read her victim impact statement at the trial of Brock Turner, Chanel Miller reclaims her identity to tell her story of trauma, transcendence, and the power of words. Listening to the author as she spotlights a culture steeped in the protection of perpetrators and brings to light a criminal justice system designed to fail the most vulnerable is heart-wrenching. While readers may find this a difficult read, it is no less important in showing the courage required to move through this unfathomable violence to choose to live a beautifully purposeful life.
