I am a survivor of horrific physical and mental abuse inflicted on me by the one person in my life that was supposed to love and protect me and teach me right from wrong. I am a fighter because I did not allow my past to dictate my future and I fought for years to successfully overcome the demons left over from my childhood.

I spent my entire life punishing myself for the acts of my mother. I spent years trying desperately to figure out why she was the way she was and what I could have done so wrong to make her hate me so much. My journey to overcome my childhood demons was difficult and painful; but in the end, I realized that my past is what it is and it was up to me to decide my future.

Mehr über den Autor

This was an extremely difficult book for me to write as many of you can imagine. In order to make the reader understand how I felt at a certain age or a certain time, I had to relive experiences that I never wanted to remember again. Many times, I would write a few pages or an entire chapter and then not come back to writing it again for 2 to 3 weeks at a time.

I debated a long time on how much to include in the book. If I were to write about every horrific experience that I had growing up - it would have turned into a 500 page book. I do feel that the experiences I wrote about in the book were the ones that really affected me long term and were ones I wasn't willing to forget about over time. It is because of these incidents that I still struggle with an eating disorder, why I still can't look people in the eyes when I talk to them and why I have such a hard time trusting people. While there were other incidents that would have made my readers cringe and cry (like Mom making me brush my teeth with Comet) - as an abused child - incidents like that were so normal that it all seemed to run together and I couldn't remember how old I was when certain events happened or what house we lived in. I do know that when I talk about my abuse, the incidents I wrote about are the ones I can't let go of and that I remember as if they all happened yesterday.

However, I found that with each word, sentence, paragraph and chapter I completed, it helped me come to terms with the abuse I endured. Actually reading what I went through myself helped me to realize that I really was the victim in the entire situation and that I wasted so many years feeling guilty for something I was not responsible for. If anyone can take anything away from this book - it is my hope that it is inspiration - inspiration for others to share their stories and hopefully get some peace in their lives. After every beating my mother gave me - it was so important to me to find something positive to cling on to - something to convince me to wake up the next morning. It may sound cheesy and silly to some, but that's how I got through it - day after day.

I will never understand why my mother treated me so poorly and I feel I have wasted too much of my life trying in vain to understand. I will however, do everything in my power to help any child suffering as I suffered. I pray for all of you suffering and I love you all.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Thank God for Epilogues 16. Juni 2011
Von Katie Templeton - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
It is 12:30am, two hours past my normal bedtime. Like Sarah, I was born in 1978 and am the mother of a young son. That is just about where the similarities end. I can't remember how I stumbled across her first novel- "Why Me," but her story is one I will never forget. Be mindful of when you begin this read- because you will not be able to put this biography down. Sarah chose to tell not only the painful, shocking story of her horribly abusive past- but succeeded in creating a timeless depiction of hope.

She crafts her story into concise chapters- some revolving around particular people in her life, some about the bigger picture- while all of them are equally spellbinding.

I could not get enough towards the end of the story, so in order to not to have to include a spoiler alert, I will let the title of my review also be my conclusion.

As a friend of the author growing up with Sarah, I never knew the tortured world she lived. Although exposed to some crazy behavior from her mother...I never knew how crazy or psychotic her mother was. I cried my eyes out while reading because I was there and never picked up on the true pain Sarah lived day to day! Sarah is a truly strong woman and perservered through this horrible childhood! Love you Sarah!

I like the way she wrote the book and how someone with such a terrible past can inspire others by staying positive looking towards the future. I enjoyed the book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Engaging. True storyz. Easy read. 27. Mai 2011
Von Colin Reef - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
Usually when it comes to a sequal one needs to read the first book to understand the second, or parts of it are repitive. Not this book. "What It Is" was such a gripping story. It made me feel angry toward abusive parents. It made me feel sad for the reality of "What It Is". And it made me feel happy to see how Sarah beat the odds of an extremely abused child, and become the beautiful human being she is today. "What It Is" is truly an inspiring story that shows one can achieve a goal. I've read over 100 memoirs and this is definately in the top 10. Thanks Sarah for writing your story!

2.0 von 5 Sternen Gripping topic, unevenly written 15. Mai 2012
Von With A C - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
The story is inspiring and uplifting, but it's the book I'm reviewing. The author would have benefitted from a good editor - the writing is clumsy, almost amateurish at times. While I feel awful for the author, to have gone through such hell, I can't say the book was anything more than the literary equivalent of rubbernecking to see a car accident. It's the TOPIC that grabs the reader; the writing is definitely third or fourth rate. I suspect this was published largely becauseof the success of Ms. Burleton's first book, with no real concern by the publisher for the quality of writing.
