The Girl in the Book charts the journey of young woman's transformation. At the outset, Alice Harvey is a lost and self-destructive 29 year old girl unable to write, too damaged for love. When her past invades her present and forces her to confront painful memories, she shatters. Helped by her friend and a new love interest, she slowly rediscovers her creative voice.

Warning Should be Made to women who have been sexual Molested
23 February 2016 | by deannapalexanderSee all my reviews

I was not expecting much when I picked this random movie on New flick two nights ago. Basically, after seeing the movie, I have visited without wanting to, my own molestation of which there were so, so many similarities. My father said the exact same thing to me when I confronted him, when I was in my thirties, "You wanted it". I was 13 when my father started trying to convince me to have sex with him (he achieved his desire after to drugged me). The very powerful mind games (you owe me) older men play to convince/guilt their victim. I felt every nauseating pain, shame, guilt, and dirty ick that these actresses portrayed. Oddly enough, I also was super promiscuous in my life before I got married. Basically, this movie should have a serious warning... I have been having vivid, horrible memories since I saw this movie. I loved it, but serious warning should be made before you watch it.
