The extraordinary YA TikTok sensation about learning to survive unthinkable trauma from bestselling author, Amber Smith 'After finishing this book, my heart was pounding and I couldnt find words big enough to describe how brilliant, beautiful, and powerful it is.' L.E. Flynn, author of All Eyes On Her All Eden wants is to rewind the clock. To live that day again. She would do everything differently. Not laugh at his jokes or ignore the way he was looking at her that night. And she would definitely lock her bedroom door. But Eden cant turn back time. So she buries the truth, along with the girl she used to be. She pretends she doesnt need friends, doesnt need love, doesnt need justice. But as her world unravels, one thing becomes clear: the only person who can save Eden is Eden. A courageous, necessary, and beautiful book.' Kathleen Glasgow, author of Girl in Pieces 'A raw novel thatll stay with you long after you finish.' Buzzfeed

Recensioner i media

'Eden is a young woman silenced by threat and shame, but so too is she a character who will inspire hope, for her extraordinarily gripping story is not only a call for action but a reminder of the power we find within ourselves to overcome and survive.' Amy Beashel, author of We Are All Constellations 'A difficult, painful journey, but teens who have experienced rape and abuse will be grateful for this unvarnished and ultimately hopeful portrait. Edens shell-shocked narrative is an excellent narrative conduit for what Smith has to say.' Booklist 'This young adult novel is an unflinching look at the struggles of a rape victim to process her trauma and find the strength to rebuild her life.' Laurie Halse Anderson, author of Speak 'This isnt an easy read, but its an important one I was incredibly moved by Smiths powerful writing, and Edens story of growth and survival is one you wont want to miss. Youll be thinking about this one long after you read that final page.' Seventeen Magazine 'The Way I Used to Be explores the aftermath of sexual assault with a precision and searing honesty that is often terrifying, sometimes eerily beautiful, and always completely true... Amber Smith gets it exactly right.' Amy Reed, author of The Nowhere Girls
