Sexually abused and broken by the decisions of those meant to care for her, Santoria had a few life-altering decisions to make of her own. None, however, would be more important than the first. The Broken Crayon is a self-help book wrapped up in a memoir about Santoria’s journey from child molestation to college graduation. Each chapter begins with a story and ends with a lesson. All together, they will inspire you to:

1. Identify the source of your brokenness
2. Exploit it for your own good
3. Forgive those involved in it, including yourself

Whether you are fifteen or 50, if you are ready and willing to confront your past, then this book is for you. If you are not, buy the book anyways. Give it to that friend or relative you keep telling yourself needs it more than you... at least until your own pain demands to be felt.
