Monika Korra refused defeat; although she was brutally raped by three individuals on her way home from a party while she was in college she determined to rise above this horrific experience. In her book, Kill The Silence A Survivor's Life Reclaimed Monika bravely recounts the night she was abused and allows the reader to follow step by step in her healing. There is much to be learnt about courage from this amazing woman. Definitely her story is so compelling that I would encourage others to put on their "must read" list. Kill The Silence is my favorite read for 2015 and I had the honor of reading for the Blogging for Books website.
