Nearly every two minutes in America, someone is sexually assaulted. Olivia Collins, an urban author residing in the heart of the hood, knows this fact all too well.
Working hard to repress her own issues, Olivia encounters Noah, an underprivileged foster kid who views himself as a number, a statistic. As the awkward duo gets to know one another, secrets about Noah begin to unfold that unravel Olivia's resolve and force her to deal with her own demons.
No one understands her sudden and unexplainable connection to the young boy, but their relationship runs deeper than anyone around her could ever understand given her undisclosed past. Olivia's certain that she and Noah are bound by a common pain, making them nearly one in the same, for she, too, is a statistic in her own way.
PRAISE FOR NOAH'S RIGHTS
As I read, tears poured. Rage was a living thing seeping from the pages and crawling through my soul. Authors strive their entire lives to pull the reader in and truly make us live the story. Bravo, Ms. York!
The author touches on so many aspects of abuse and places you literally in the moment of suffering from every emotion that the characters are experiencing. This book is the definition of amazing writing along with a life lesson.
