    As compelling and important as the topic of this book was I had to force myself to finish it What I disliked intensely about this book was the almost childish way of writing In my opinion had this book been written better it would have been an extremely strong work The topic is something that needs to be spoken about and

necessary it s the stupid ones that need the advice At the time I thought it was ridiculous His way of showing off or making himself seem much worldly than he actually wasIt wasn t until today that I realized sometime cliched sayings are the most appropriate form of communicationYesterday I finally had the distinct pleasure and yesI do mean pleasure of finishing a book I have been reading for than a week Normally a book will take me a day a day and a half at the most but Believe Like a Child by Paige Dearth was different It was was so raw so disturbing that I found myself having to put it down for extended period of time just to be able to breath properlyIt shortreading this book was like Stumbling on a train wreck and being unable to tear your eyes away You don t want to watch but you have to You don t want to subject yourself to the harsh realities bound to be inside of the wreckage but your curiosity is stronger than your will Believe Like A Child is the train wreck Dirty and smoking Filled with horrors unimaginable Dark depressing and utterly engrossing to it s very last page Alessa is just seven years old when her uncle rapes her for the first time As the years pass his sexual appetite becomes voracious and his perversion twisted until the abuse has become almost a daily ritual with the unspoken involvement of the girl s mother At the age of sixteen after the death of her only friend Alessa finds herself at the mercy of her real life monster with no relief in sight She flees her home to escape this hell only to find herself descending into a dangerous one Alone and helpless in the streets of North Philadelphia she encounters human predators who want to take over her life and devour her About to hit rock bottom Alessa manages to break away from her new tormentors and finds refuge in a shelter for homeless and abused women Wherever she goes however trouble keeps seeking her out until she meets three people who change the course of her life forever Though Alessa s bittersweet journey is perpetually fraught with challenges she does nevertheless manage to find fleeting moments of joy along the way But as she begins to settle down a ghost from the past comes to haunt her again threatening to destroy the very foundation of her small world and plunging her back into an abyss of despair until she makes her final bid for escape I am going to start off my breakdown with a disclaimerThis book is NOT for the faint of heart It s NOT for young audiences It s NOT for mothers easily overcome by anxiety The situations presented in this novel are NOT easy to read about and will than likely affect you either mentally or physically If you have a difficult time reading in explicit detail about molestation rape prostitution gang violence or are easily offended by harsh language DO NOT READ THIS NOVELIt s been a while since I have read a book as mentally demanding as this one Hard yes Sad yes Mentally exhausting NoThe pure sadness that radiated from the pages of this novel could be bottled and sold The writing so shocking and intimate that even if it had been elementary tied down by grammatical errors and sloppy structure it would have gone by completely unnoticedAKAthe STORY did it s job It made everything else insignificantIn the interest of sounding someone professional I ll tell you thisWe are sucked into the details of this story through Alessa s eyes and because of this minute detail we are privy to the darkest and harshest aspects of her life Nothing is left to the imagination When she finds herself under the ties of her pedophile Uncle Danny we are in the room with her The experience is spelled out It s not flowery or filled with passive imagery It is harsh it is assaulting to the senses and it is real The same could be said for the rest of the novelHowever despite the abominable aspects of this story there is a deeper meaning One of triumph and faith A glimmer of light that shines on the possibility of hope for ALL of the characters involved not just Alessa It teaches a lesson That regardless of where you are now you can always end up somewhere else All you have to do is Believe like a child Believe in yourselfSome stories you read and move on Some stories you take with you for the rest of your life Paige Dearth s story is the latterA dark tale with stunning characters and an emotional subject Not for everyone but perfect for a fewHappy reading my fellow Kindle ites and remember Learn from yesterday live for today hope for tomorrow The important thing is not to stop uestioning Einstein

Believe Like a Child

Counters people who hurt her About to hit rock bottom Alessa breaks free from her new tormentors and finds refuge in a shelter for homeless and abused womenWherever she goes however trouble keeps seeking her out until she meets three people who change the course of her life Though Alessa's bittersweet journey is fraught with challenges she do. I received this book for free through Goodreads First ReadsThough I applaud the effort no part of me enjoyed this read I fought hard not to DNF it and the only reason I didn t was because it was a giveaway and I figured the least I could do was finish and review it My track record with giveaway books so far is one DNF and it is something I swore to myself I wouldn t do againThis book is about a sexually abused child that as she grows up struggles to find a safe passage through life The story is told from her point of view and she shares every detail of what happens to her throughout the story I want to be clear the descriptions are extremely graphic I m sure they were written this way to highlight what kind of hell children as well as adults face in these situationsThe introduction was brutal and stomach turning and the rest of the story meandered down a fantastical path into the absurd I could excuse the beginning when I thought there was a message to be had but once it worked its way into everything bad happening all of the time regardless of believability I was over it I could get past the childlike writing style because I assumed like the graphic details it was written that way to send a message I could not get past the mediocre characters and the beyond belief storyline Two stars changed to one after I tried for hours to find even one positive thing I could say in this review

This is a completely unsolicited review independent of any obligation real or imagined by anyone Let me say first that I am an editor and as such I read a lot Now I will set aside my day job and talk about this story It drew me in from the beginning with a story so honest so terrible that you knew the author had been there done that The story is an impressive tale that covers a topic most people shy from Most people would never even in fiction be as honest in what really happens in life I sincerely wish there was a higher rating than five stars for I believe Paige Dearth to be one of the very few authors I know of that I would give a higher rating to WARNING there is graphic honesty about the sex trade and the sexual abuse of children For me this very honesty made the story better It showed the horror children live through and what is possible to over comeStepping back into my job as an editor yes there are a few small boo boos in the story I would be less than honest if I didn t mention them However whomever did edit this did a good job None of the tiny mistakes will detract from the story nor would fixing them have enhanced the story I will be reading of the work by this author Count on it May I also say that as Ms Dearth herself was a victim of childhood abuse she gives the look from the inside in a way no other could Well done
