This is Simon's own story - in his own words - of the horrific abuse he suffered from the age of ten, and the consequences it had on his life. it is a shocking, no holds barred account of how his life was changed forever by a teacher he trusted, and respected and who should really have known betterThis was emotionally brutal. I have just finished it for the second time and I am a limp rag of emotion. There are brutal scenes, brutal language and brutal emotions. All these serve to tell the story [...]

Losing the Hate is a story of sexual abuse, self-hate, and a road to recovery. It kept me on edge praying his abusers would be caught and made me really sad for the life he lead because of the abuse.

A story with heart.

As a survivor of abuse I cannot understate the courage it took for the author to relive his experience, in detail, and recount it with such honesty. This book needs to be read and deserves to be read. Thank you for sharing with us Mr Palmer.
