The Blue Notebook

This is a remarkable novel.  James Levine is a Professor of Medicine at the Mayo Clinic, a man; but the story is told in a womans' voice, and it rings true 100% of the time.

The woman in question is Batuk a 15 year old prositute, sold into prositution at age 9, by her father.

Beautifully crafted and deeply human, The Blue Notebook explores how people, in the most difficult of situations, can use storytelling to make sense of and give meaning to their lives.  All of the U.S. proceeds from this novel will be donated to the International and National Centers for Missing and Exploited Children (http://www.icmec.org).
