review challenge #4 mysterious meet up.


I’m in the middle of reading I Am No One You Know by Joyce Carol Oates. This book is a collection of stories-I have a favorite called  The Girl With the Blackened Eye where a woman relives being attacked at age 14 and held captive for eight days. She was eventually rescued-but I want to know how she was able to stand seeing another person suffer like her. I also want to know now that she’s older, how does she handle herself? Does she have nightmares? Is she able to have a social life with all the scars on her physically and mentally? I would hope if she had a daughter she would warn her about the dangers of things like this happening to young girls everywhere!
