Survivors’ Dawn is a heroic story about three college women’s fight for justice.
At first glance, Brooke Flanagan, Lauren Le, and Nikki Towers have little in common: a white virgin, an Asian party girl, and a black resident advisor. But they all have their own dreams, dreams that can be shattered in a single night.
When freshman Brooke Flanagan first arrives at the university, she’s excited to escape her sheltered life in a Southern town. Lauren Le, a scholarship student, likes to have a good time, but she never disappoints her hardworking, single mom. Nikki Towers always goes her own way; confident, poised, and wealthy, Nikki’s biggest problem is what to do with her future.
Into these girls’ lives walks Colin Jordan. Colin is the son of a private equity titan, captain of his club basketball team, and a brilliant pre-law student. He is also a sexual predator.
Survivors’ Dawn tells the story of the strength, courage, and determination of survivors, describes the obstacles they face in their pursuit of justice, and finally, offers hope for a future where students can pursue their dreams without fear of being attacked.
FROM THE AUTHOR
The unending accounts of sexual assault on college campuses compelled me to write Survivors’ Dawn.
As Lady Gaga’s “Til It Happens to You” implies, non-victims can never truly know how it feels to be assaulted, but we can try to empathize, and we can try to help. The publisher and I will contribute thirty percent of our proceeds from sales of this book to It’s On Us, End Rape on Campus, or other like-minded organizations.
