Have you ever kept a secret, one strategically hidden, unknown, or unseen? If discovered, the secret could destroy someone. What if as a child, you were sexually abused?
 
 Deflowered Lyric shines the light on sexual abuse through glimpsing the childhoods of three main characters. Their journey through life discloses brokenness and strength intertwined together and expressed in a poetic prose. The enthralling story of their tangled lives reveals the struggles shared from their experiences of sexual abuse.
 
Uncovered are the stark truths of lives touched by abuse with graphic depictions of sexual assault and the resulting emotional turmoil.
Each chapter of the book starts with a lyrical poem to introduce the life stages of each character.
 
Although the topic of child sexual abuse is a somewhat forbidden and a hidden conversation, Deflowered Lyric introduces the reader's to a cadence, which marches towards healing through exposing and acknowledging the secret sin to forgiving the reprobate. A strong religious faith by the character, Lyric provides the roadmap to recovery.
 
Written with blunt, honest prose, Deflowered Lyric raises awareness to the pain and fear victims of childhood sexual abuse suffer, and calls readers to action; demanding protection for children.
 
Deflowered Lyric has received the distinct honor of Award-Winning Finalist in the "Fiction: African-American" category of the 2014 USA Best Book Awards".

From the Author:

I am a new author of my first published fictional book entitled, Deflowered Lyric by JJ Staples. This novel was written to bring attention to child sexual abuse through glimpsing the childhoods of three main charters. Their journey through life reveals brokenness and strength that are intertwined together and expressed in a poetic prose. I start each chapter of the book  with a lyrical poem to introduce the life stages of the characters. Although the topic of child sexual abuse is a somewhat forbidden and hidden conversation, I have attempted to shine a light on this subject with hopes of changing minds, policies and instances of this hideous crime. Our babies need protecting and we all have an obligation to keep them safe. Refusing to discuss this subject, hiding it or turning our heads only continues to further escalate and increase the number of adults who will later need help as they unravel the guilt and betrayal feelings from those whose job it was to protect them. I believe God has ordained me to carry out this charge as once a victim myself, I turned to him. His grace and mercy has healed me and set my life on a journey to save, aid and protect others. To god be the Glory.

I would be honored and privileged if you would consider reading then provide a review of my book.
 
Thank- You
