  1. A passionate, angry piece of advocacy, but it is equally, and in consequence, a brave and necessary act of truth-telling.
  2. Los Angeles Times
    Reviewed by: Kevin Thomas
    As compelling as it is illuminating.
  3. San Francisco Examiner

    The finest element in de la Pena's carefully assembled account is how she doesn't simply state the obvious, but lets the meaty facts speak for themselves.
  4. New York Daily News
    Reviewed by: Jack Mathews
    Both frustrating and instructive.
  5. 70
    Fascinating on a number of levels, and deeply disturbing through and through.
  6. 50
