One Review from Amazon.com:
This is a must read for college freshmen!!!, January 4, 2011
This is a great book that should be given away at either high school graduation or college orientation. This book really reminds women of things we forget when we find ourselves in a new situation. We are at a new school trying to fit in and find our niche and are so busy doing that that we forget how to keep ourselves safe. We need to be reminded to listen to our gut. If we feel that something is wrong 9 times out of 10 it is. And we should always be safe than sorry.
Some women are in abusive relationships and don't even know it. Wambui Bahati Takes characters from the play I am Domestic Violence to warn women that just because he doesn't hit you, doesn't mean you are not being abused. I hope that by reading this book the scarily high statistics of women who are abused and raped in college will decline dramatically.
