Book Review: The Color of Pain – Boys who are sexually abused and the men they become

BOOK REVIEW BY BOOKS AND CHOCOLATE[The Color of Pain] is [Gregory Reid’s] story but it is also a book of facts that includes topics such as looking for the signs of sexual abuse, where predators hunt, myths about abused boys, what a victim looks like, why men and boys don’t talk about their abuse, and what not to tell abused boys and men. I felt the author did an excellent job in addressing the pain and issues surrounding abuse without being graphic.
I’m grateful that this is not something I know about first-hand (at least not that I’m aware of), but after reading this book I feel I can recommend it as a valuable resource to anyone who has been a victim, knows someone who is, or is a professional counselor, pastor, teacher, or parent of sons who needs to know what signs to look for and how to respond.
