    When I was a child, I used to frequent the “young adult” section of the library. It was there I found books like Judy Blume’s Forever, and the Princess of the Chameln series that made me fall in love with fantasy.

    It was also where I found a rather frank and graphic book about child sex abuse. It contained an extremely moving, and very disturbing, account of a girl being raped by her father. I don’t remember the name of the book, and I’m not going to look for it, because to this day I can’t face that book again. I can still quote passages of it from memory, and it haunts my dreams.
