Alana Brayboy shares her harrowing story of abuse in her autobiography titled, “Rescued” (Xulon; 2018). The book tells how she endured atrocious sexual, physical, and emotional abuse starting from age 5 to 17. It also details her journey toward recovery and transition to clinical therapy, victim counseling, and awareness advocacy. 
 
“Rescued” will be making the round at book fairs across the country. ReadersMagnet will exhibit the book at the 2020 Tucson Festival of Books on March 14-15, 2020 at the University of Arizona Campus, Tucson.
 
The open-air literary festival aims to support literacy in Southern Arizona. Over 100,000 visitors flock to the Tucson Festival of Books every year to do more than browse new books. They meet new authors, discover new publishers and book organizations, and take part in more than 300 presentations. The book festival holds a wide variety of exhibits, author panels, book signings, food vendors, diverse cultural programs, and special programming for children and teens, among other activities.
 
Although being a therapeutic effort, “Rescued” serves as the author’s extension of her advocacy to help others break the crippling cycle of abuse. Writing the book has been an empowering experience for her. In fact, she never thought about writing a book, much less an abuse awareness tool, until she took her Masters.
 
“I have a voice. I can be heard,” said Brayboy during her guesting in ‎This Week in America with Ric Bratton, “When I realized that my therapist and everybody that take the time to hear me, believe me and my story, that was so powerful to know that this was something that happened to me.
 
“There is hope and help out there that I didn’t have to hide in a dark place or run away from my pain, but I could face it in a therapeutic, helpful way. I am able to be bold enough and courageous to have a voice to speak and reach out to other people, that there is hope and they can get help.”
