by Shanna Red
She is trying to fight adult battles with a child’s weaponry. In her adolescent state, Water needed guidance - her mother offered none, a totally self-centered individual who was more of a detriment than an aide. Water painfully developed the strength to move beyond their caustic relationship, and with the help life circumstances she frees herself from sickness of her mother. Water’s most substantial foe was the American psychiatric institution; here she was abandoned, mislead, and deceived. When she sought help, she was abused further with no consequences for her abusers.
The story takes an unexpected twist Water’s growth despite these obstacles; her learning how to fight and when to say no, her learning that sexual needs are not always meant to be met, her learning that every smiling face is not a friend, and most importantly - her learning that she is valuable to herself.
