This is the book cover:
Lisa Carver's new book has no title and never will
This is the dust jacket copy:
There are plenty of child prostitutes—10 million every year, according to the U.S. Center for Disease Control (America has the third highest number of child prostitutes in the world.).
There are plenty of people who can write so you feel like you were there. Up to 160,000 new memoirs every year, according to The New York Times.
Well, here’s an intersection of the two. Here’s what it feels like to be four years old getting shoved into a car by your father to do whatever the stranger wants.
Plus what it’s like to have no memory, and to be confronted with your own bizarre behavior that you can’t explain, and to wake up in the emergency room or a stranger’s room and not know how you got there.
And then what it’s like when you find those memories— what truly murderous rage feels like, and then to find out what love and happiness and sand and calm and kissing feels like.
… what feeling feels like.
