What Is Wrong With Me? by Kristin Hammoud tells the story of a young woman who learns to confront her own life choices. This remarkable story begins with Anna Ward’s early memories. It shows why Anna, at only nine years old, wishes that her parents would get a divorce. It also shows how Anna’s adolescence turns out to be even more traumatic than her childhood. At sixteen years old, Anna goes through one of the most horrible events of her life that make her want nothing more than to get away from her home and dysfunctional family. Yet, everywhere Anna goes, she constantly feels there is something wrong with her. She just can't figure out why she reacts the way she does to everything good or bad that happens to her.
What Is Wrong With Me? by Kristin Hammoud is the most practical and thought-provoking book on trauma and narcissistic love patterns I've ever read. This story taught me more about abusive relationships, dysfunctional family patterns, and the importance of therapy than any nonfiction book did. It's poignant and extremely informative from the start. It offers a rough and realistic portrait of dysfunctional families and wretched personal lives. Many young girls and adult women will relate to Anna's story. It teaches young girls how to always make sure their voices are heard and use them to communicate their thoughts and feelings. Every victim of abuse, including men, can learn from reading this. It will help you break free from the cycle of trauma, abuse, destructive relationships, seeking validation and approval from others, and being a hostage to past experiences and painful emotions.
