ADDICTION & ABUSE

PURE IN HEART: A MEMOIR OF OVERCOMING ABUSE AND PASSING JENNA’S LAW by Jenna Quinn, MS

In a swift and breathtaking narrative, Pure In Heart tells the astonishing true story of how sixteen-year-old Jenna Quinn broke free from years of sexual abuse at the hands of a trusted family friend and coach. After the painful effects of the abuse almost cost Jenna her life, she found the courage to tell her story.

With actual court impact statements, this book gives the reader a clear picture of how sexual abuse begins, progresses, and affects so many innocent lives. In Pure In Heart, Jenna is transparent about her road to recovery and healing that eventually led to her greatest passion: protecting children from abuse.

Jenna’s story answers the uncomfortable questions people have about child sexual abuse: How can a family not see the signs? What causes a child to keep silent for years? What resources and skills can we teach children to help them prevent or end abuse by speaking up?

This book is not just a memoir; it’s also a training tool with prevention as the hallmark. Jenna wrote this book to intentionally raise awareness for social change, with hopes of helping survivors find true healing and freedom.

“This powerful narrative will inspire empathy in parents, families, teachers, classmates, and friends of victims, and inspire hope in survivors that, like Jenna, they can heal and, in turn, help protect children from abuse.”—Teresa Huizar, Executive Director, National Children’s Alliance

Pure In Heart is a must-read. This book can give courage, hope, and support to anyone. It’s more than inspirational. It’s eye opening and gives the reader a guide to prevention.”—Michael Medoro, Chief Development Officer of Childhelp

“Captivating and refreshingly humorous at times—I couldn’t put this book down.”—Stacie Rumenap, President of Stop Child Predators
