When five-year-old Yolanda is sexually abused by her own father, saying her life will never be the same again is an understatement. She became the subject of her father’s sexual desires, and he raped her repeatedly, almost every night, for ten years. When her younger sister was born, she decided to act to put an end to this unspeakable crime.
Many years later, she finds herself suffering the effects of the horrible nightmare from her past that still haunts her. Yolanda is still bound with the bitter tragedy from her childhood until she marries and has kids on her own. She is not without pain and hurt. She is still broken. Looking for a Fire Exit is Yolanda’s story. This book screams for justice and brings attention to the unspeakable acts of corrupting our children. The text is filled with stories that might be offensive and graphic, and that is exactly the purpose of this book: to highlight the horror of sexual abuse and child molestation that still threatens the safety of our children. People care about the victims of sexual assault and rape, but do we care enough to act? Not all the monsters disappear when you pull the covers up over your head!
