Synopsis

"A Girl Called Karen" is one woman's shocking yet inspirational story of sexual abuse at the hands of her father, and later, her foster father. Despite the trauma and anguish Karen suffered as a teenager, she overcame the abuse and much more - including a failed marriage, divorce and life as a single mother - to come out on top and achieve what she calls 'life success.' Karen's story is not one of victimization; it is about preserving the human spirit in the face of trauma. She reveals the secrets of her own resilience and that of the foster care youth she has worked with, outlining seven powerful steps for the positive reframing of one's thoughts, attitude, and actions. Rich with revealing case histories, Karen's indefatigable spirit is vividly present in this affirming book.
