Facade by Stacy Canter in Literature & Fiction
"Façade" is a manuscript written with a specific goal in mind, and that is for the reader to understand the mental prison that sexual abuse creates in the mind of the victim. This book documents the arduous journey of Erin, a young adolescent struggling with the horrors of incest. It describes in graphic and grisly detail, the victimization of an innocent young girl, her will to survive, and the strength of the human spirit.
