Praise for Groomed
The reviews are in...
Groomed is giving women freedom they didn't know they needed.
"My entire life it was always ingrained in me to not say anything. Nobody will believe you, what are people going to say, you're going to make me/us look bad, there are always consequences for saying stuff like this, people have their own problems, what good is it going to do? Though this book isn't long, it is just over 200 pages, it is a really fast read and you'll be glued to it. You will identify with a lot of it because through the author's very personal stories she explains grooming and how we are all groomed in some way. Most of it we don't even realize and looking back in hindsight is startling to realize how close we were to someone who didn't have our best interests in mind. It isn't even just sexual abuse, it can be as simple as the way we handle a crisis. The messages you receive groom you to believe the treatment you are enduring is ultimately OK. I found myself re-reading passages and having to take a break to think about it and try to understand my past traumas in a different light."
“With sharp insight culled from years of counseling experience, Good helps women find ways to confront grooming and take practical steps toward creating a healthier future.”
"A must-read for anyone with baggage! Not only does Elizabeth help us to unpack the layers of troubling messages told to us throughout our lives, but in doing so, she frees us to find the healing and light we didn’t even realize we needed. As one who works regularly with survivors of the sexual exploitation industry, this book greatly helped me to see the complexities that compound the trauma suffered by victims more clearly. "
-Dawn Hawkins, Sr. Vice President, National Center on Sexual Exploitation
"In Groomed Elizabeth shares a raw, heart-wrenching story, digging deeply to save others–a vital education, a sad tale, and a miracle of truth. Stopping sex trafficking and helping young women thrive is only possible through the education this book provides. And, ultimately, the sad realization that it could have been any of us!"
