You Can Come Back
This is Katie Beer's horrific story of years of family abuse before she spent sixteen days kept locked in a box and being raped by a family friend at nine years old.
You wouldn't think anyone could recover— Katie not only recovers but thrives. Told in alternating narratives Katie on the inside, co-author reporter Carolyn Gusoff on the out. You get the raw story and how it played out in public and in the law. Narrators Allyson Ryan and Eileen Stevens give this story the respect it deserves without turning maudlin.
With help from the system that had, until then, failed her, she overcomes what feels like the worst possible circumstances. Help from therapy and school, and support from a loving foster family bring her through.
Contemplating human cruelty and endurance, it's heartening to know that we can be this resilient and flourish.
