Our Review:
See What You Made Me Do by Jess Hill is a book that speaks right into our current climate, a book that highlights power, control and domestic abuse.

Highly awarded this book is essential reading, reading it is a small way to educate and broaden your understanding of the insurmountable challenges that many young women face today.

In recent days we have been bombarded with the devastatingly unjust experience of one young woman, Brittany Higgins whose experience is all too familiar. This book is fantastic resource to use as a platform to discuss these difficult but necessary conversations with your family, friends and colleagues.

Domestic abuse, is in endemic proportions throughout Australia, and this book poignantly opens the lid on what is often times a shameful secret in our culture.

Domestic abuse impacts us all, with one Australian killed every week. This is a book of power, courage and strength that is a shattering but necessary exposé on the reality we face.

Undoubtedly a difficult, challenging and alarming topic, Jess Hill has written a compassionate, factual and thorough book filled with stories, evidence and research that is a brilliant and engaging resource.

A book for everyone, that meets people where they are at, and challenges each person to stand up, speak out and be a part of the solution.
