Though I was not raped at my elite New England boarding school, my experiences there were such that nothing about Lacy Crawford's story surprised me, and yet everything about it shook me to the core. Crawford's brutal honesty, her willingness to be as frank about her drive to belong as she is furious about St. Paul's response to her assault, makes for an incredibly powerful read.

Forgive the cliche and my hyperbole, if it is that, but this book took my breath away. I read it long before publication, in one sitting, with awe, admiration, and an overwhelming desire to share it. I sent to a surgeon friend, a man who'd had his own unnerving brush with death, who is also one of the most perspicacious readers I know. He pre-ordered twelve copies for his colleagues and close friends. There will be no more Paul Kalanithi books, so you must read this one. Best to do so now.
