About the Book
Yvonne Sandomir’s The Invisible Girl is a memoir about her arduous journey through childhood trauma and her subsequent quest to heal through psychotherapy. From a young age, Yvonne experienced traumas that no one should face and as a young adult still could not escape abuse and hardship. She developed a keen perspective on the phenomenon of generational abuse and, like many other survivors, sought out to break the cycle. Through this memoir, Yvonne hopes to inspire other adult survivors of childhood trauma to seek help and to spread the word about childhood sexual abuse, its prevalence in today’s society, and its effects on the mind into adulthood.
