  • Good reads says:Invisible Target is a true, detailed account of one girl’s experience of educator sexual abuse at the hands of her middle school teacher. It follows her journey, beginning with her tumultuous childhood, meeting the teacher, and the grooming process he created to lure her into a false sense of trust and ultimate betrayal. After years of abuse and manipulation, she finally found the courage to bravely break away from her abuser.

    With excerpts from newspaper articles and an actual court impact statement, this book gives you a clear picture of how the epidemic of educator sexual abuse begins, progresses, and affects so many innocent lives.

    Our member Nicole gave me permission to use her note. Here it is: " Last meeting we talked about reading non-fiction. This actually took place in the town where I grew up and I had this guy as my eighth grade science teacher. My mom, also a teacher, had the author as a student. It is something I plan to read anyway But thought it would provoke an interesting discussion." I think it will be an amazing discussion especially with one of our members being so close to the whole ordeal.
