I was born into a family who was abusive. Mom and Dad weren't together, never married. Dad was an alcoholic drug addict (who eventually died from Hep C). Mom was crazy. (Bi-polar, manic depressive, MPD) tried committing suicide in front of my brothers in and several times. Um.. step dad was phycially and mentally abusive.
At 15 years old, I was rap*d by my 24 year old boyfriend. (lots of regrets here, not .. pressing charges). Recently there was a huge se.x ring in my town busted, this guys uncle was one of the "leaders".
Met my husband at 17 started dating him, and moved out. Married in '05.
Going through a divorce now.
This is the short story. And by far not everything.

According to the copy right date it came out this year. :)
I seen it at Wal-Mart tonight and the description sounds fun:
College student Devin Jones took the summer job at Joyland hoping to forge the girl who broke his heart. But he wound up facing something far more terrible: the legacy of a vicious murder, the fate of a dying child and dark truths about life- and what comes after - that would change his world forever.
