    Personal Response: I loved the book The Worm Fiasco by Carrie-Anne O’Driscoll because it had some pretty tragic events. The author made it so I was on the edge of my seat wondering what would happen next. Another reason I loved this book was because it was based on a true story, so it was ten times better. Plot: The book started off with Cara, a pregnant woman, on the floor with blood all over her body. Her husband, John, beat her because he was mad at her.

The author made it so I was on the edge of my seat wondering what would happen next. Another reason I loved this book was because it was based on a true story, so it was ten times better. Plot: The book started off with Cara, a pregnant woman, on the floor with blood all over her body. Her husband, John, beat her because he was mad at her. He beat her with his fist, kicked her with steel toed boots, and used some sharp objects like a coat hanger to poke her. He tried to kill their baby by punching and kicking Cara directly in the stomach. When she got some of her strength back, she ran to her neighbor's house. Unfortunately, her neighbors were John’s brother, sister-in-law, and nephew. She pounded on the door panicking because John was right behind her. Her sister-in-law, who hated her, opened the door and saw Cara covered in blood. She looked at her like she was a stupid person. John caught up with her and they went in the house. Cara got cleaned up and was blackmailed by her own husband. John had a tape recorder of her saying that if John hurt her or the baby she would kill him. Her sister-in-law, Mollie, told her she deserved to be beaten. Her sister-in-law told her she had to clean up her own blood mess, because on her way over to the house she cut her feet on sharp stones. Cara stayed up all night cleaning up the mess. After cleaning, she left the house and decided to run away. Characterization: The story was told through a third person point of view. The main characters were: Cara, John, Mollie, and Cody. Cara was John’s wife and Mollie’s sister-in-law. She was pregnant with John’s baby. Cara was 28 years old at the time. John was Cara’s husband and he was a mean husband. He liked to beat Cara up all the time to get his anger out. John was 52, but had lied and told Cara he was much younger. Mollie was John’s sister-in-law. Mollie was closer to John’s age. Cody was Mollie’s son and Cara’s best friend. Cody was only 12 years old. He was the only one that understood what was going on with Cara and John. He knew it was wrong that John beat Cara up all the time. Setting: The story was written in 2010, but the events happened in 2009. During this time in her life the author lived in California, Montana, Washington, Georgia, South Carolina, and Virginia. Cara and her husband moved around a lot. All the abuse happened in the houses they lived in. Recommendation: I would recommend this to anybody that has gone through domestic violence or has been sexually assaulted. The author wanted everyone who read this book to become stronger and she wanted to share her story to help others. This book is for adults and mature audience. It has very strong words and descriptive events. I gave this a five out of five star rating.

    This book was very hard to read because I am a friend of the author. What an ordeal this woman went through and survived. Beyond crazy! Grateful that there is now more help available for battered and abused women but shocked and appalled at everything that seemingly slipped through the hands of law enforcement at the time when she and her son needed protection the most! As tough as it may be, please read this book through to the end. Then DO something about it! Be an advocate to those in danger This book was very hard to read because I am a friend of the author. What an ordeal this woman went through and survived. Beyond crazy! Grateful that there is now more help available for battered and abused women but shocked and appalled at everything that seemingly slipped through the hands of law enforcement at the time when she and her son needed protection the most! As tough as it may be, please read this book through to the end. Then DO something about it! Be an advocate to those in danger for the sake of their own lives and others involved. Be aware of red flags and speak up and speak out! "The enemy comes to kill, steal, and destroy, but I have come that they might have life more abundantly." - John 10:10 (The Bible) Both realities exist. Choose the abundant life and help others to reach it by taking action, asking questions and no longer remaining silent. Like she says: Share the story!

    My favorite parts of the book were the little quotes from women who have survived Domestic Violence. It was very rewarding to see the victim in this book prevailed and survived and has a happy life. The story was a hard one to read but in another sense its good to know that women who go through this are not alone, because when they are going through it they feel like they are. I should know..

    Carrie takes you on a heart wrenching tale of her life. This is a must read. You feels as though you are right there with her. Crying her tears. Feeling her despair and her hope for the future. It touched me so much.

    I'm currently reading and am engrossed. The storytelling is personal, insightful and gripping. Though I know it is based on truth, it is hard to imagine living through this situation.
