If I Am Missing or Dead: A Sister's Story of Love, Murder, and Liberation by Janine Latus
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I picked this book up thinking is was a novel. After starting the book, I shortly realized it was a memoir. I think it would have been easier to read knowing it was fiction.
The book is about the author's life, beginning as a young girl. Her life is molded by an assortment of awful men, including her father. Throughout her life, both her and her sister are abused both mentally and physically by the men in their lives. The book spoke to me in regards to how much are you willing to endure to find happiness or what you think is happiness? What are women willing to put themselves through to please their someone else. when is it abuse? It is a book about liberation and standing up for yourself even when you feel like you are all alone.
I really enjoyed this book. In fact, I couldn't put it down and when I did, I couldn't stop thinking about it.
