Publisher's Summary

"These were boys we knew, boys we trusted. 'They wouldn't do that to you,' she insisted. I wanted to believe her. But I couldn't...."

On July 6, 2002, 16-year-old Alisa Kaplan woke, sick and disoriented, in the passenger seat of her car. She'd been at a party the night before, but there was a big blank hole where her own memories of the night should have been. So what happened at that party? Why couldn't she remember anything about the night before? As the appalling, terrifying details of that night began to surface, it ignited a media frenzy and a storm of controversy with Alisa trapped at the center: A straight-laced, straight-A student, sexually assaulted by three male friends - all caught on videotape.

Her fight for justice pitted her against some of Southern California's most powerful families and made her the target of a devastating smear campaign. Despite the evidence, the corruption and humiliation of her first trial resulted in a hung jury and sent her spiraling into the oblivion of meth addiction. But on the threshold of her last chance and darkest moment, Alisa discovered: There was still room for hope. Now she recounts her gripping story of transforming from victim to survivor: how she got a second chance, broke her silence, and found faith and grace in God on her way to rebuilding a stronger, meaningful life.

Courageous and heartbreaking, Alisa's hope-filled account demonstrates that redemption is always possible, and forgiveness can transform anyone.

    Story
    "Perspective"

    What happened to Alisa is impossible to capture and convey in words. I sent a group text to my family about the book before reaching midpoint. As someone who believes forgiving others is a critical component for progression and success in life, I kept thinking this just might be the exception to the forgiveness principal. The fact that Alisa was able to forgive speaks to her strength, courage, determination, resilience, super natural power, etc. She helped me to put the battles that I face as an adult woman into perspective. The issues that I complain about now seem trivial. Alisa thank you for sharing your experience with us. As gruesome as your experience was, I am in awe that you are still standing. Your best is yet to come!!!
