Reviews for My Story


Library Journal Reviews 2014 February #1

This haunting and inspiring memoir will have readers horrified at the atrocities that then 14-year-old Smart had to endure. After she describes being kidnapped at knifepoint from her safe Mormon home and subjected to daily rapes and humiliation from her captors, Smart turns her story of despair amazingly into one of hope. Her nine months of capture steeled her resolve in her faith and her commitment to doing the right thing and showing constant gratitude. Smart's story captured the nation's hearts in 2002 and will continue to do so in this heartfelt memoir. Her intimate story sheds light on her captivity and how she was able to rebuild her life after such an altering and scarring event. The audiobook, beautifully narrated by the author, has an extra dimension of truth and emotion. VERDICT For fans of inspirational and Christian memoirs.--Erin Cataldi, Franklin Coll. Lib, IN
