Product Description

About the Author

Sheldon Kennedy skated for three teams in his eight-year NHL career and played for Canada's gold-medal-winning team in the 1988 World Junior Hockey Championship. He is best known for his courageous decision to charge his minor-league hockey coach, Graham James, with sexual assault for the abuse he suffered over a five-year period while a teenager under Graham's care. Sheldon's subsequent decision to go public with the charges rocked the hockey world and thrust him into the media spotlight, where he became an unofficial spokesperson for millions of sexual abuse survivors in North America. His life story was made into an award-winning television movie, and he has appeared on Oprah, ABC's Nightline, W5, and The Fifth Estate.After retiring from the NHL, Sheldon in-line skated across Canada to raise awareness of sexual abuse issues. Sheldon now works as a youth counsellor in Calgary, where he lives with his daughter, Ryan.

Format: Hardcover
I am a survivor and found Mr. Kennedy's book to be true in nature and well written. He provides enough detail for the reader to experience the vicitmization through his eyes and he describes perpetrators to a "T" especially the denial and lack of ownership in ruining his life and the life of others. It is important for the public to understand how easy it is for a child to be harmed so badly and for so long.There are so many other horrific details to be shared... His book provides a good introductory reading in understanding sexual abuse and I recommend it to everyone. Knowledge is power...for children's sake! Just remember that perpetrators are the most unsuspecting people.

This was an excellent story. I commend Sheldon for coming forward. I am a victim of sexual abuse as a child. As victims we carry shame and fear.
Telling your story is a part of the journey to healing.
For those who have never been abused, by reading about it, it helps you to understand why we don't say anything. We are children in a children's mind. We are programmed... We are afraid, we are ashamed. We don't understand.
As aduylts, we try to block it out, we are afraid of criticism or more shame..
It is a good read. Be blessed Sheldon Kennedy!

thank you for writing this book and coming forward with your abuse. You were not alone by a long shot. When we are silent about the abuse it seems like we are alone and the offenders have a field day. You really rocked the hockey world but it needed rocking. I was sexually abused by a NHL hockey player 60 years ago. Who would have believed me at the time. No one.
