Silent Screams: An Autobiography, by Susan Aguilar

Writing about ones tragic experiences can be rough. There’s a certain level of emotionality to be presented that sometimes gets difficult. Silent Screams is one such auto-biography.

 
The beauty of putting it out there is not only therapeutic at times, but it’s also a beacon of hope. “You’re not alone,” it says. “You’re not alone,” is also a sad statement. Things that shouldn’t happen to people are happening to more than statistically reported. Silent Screams, much like the title alludes, feels like exactly that. The tone is that of the author putting words to paper hurriedly, like they’re trying to get the images out of their head. Or trying to tell the story before they’re discovered. It helps to enhance the reader’s emotional experience. Things are kept fairly short–background information given where needed, characters come and go as needed. Even the writing style remains shortened.

 
Some editing and polishing would be beneficial to the message of the narrative. And there’s a powerful one.
