A well-established legal doctrine that a defendant must 'take their victim as they find them'. If a single punch kills someone because of their thin skull, that victim's weakness cannot mitigate the seriousness of the crime. But what if it also works the other way? What if a defendant on trial for sexual crimes has to accept his 'victim' as she comes: a strong, determined accuser who knows the legal system, who will not back down until justice is done? Bri Lee began her first day of work at the Queensland District Court as a bright-eyed judge's associate. Two years later she was back as the complainant in her own case.
A moving listen

Heartbreaking and Powerful
Finishing this book in the car on the way home meant I was sobbing as I drove through the front gate. This book made me feel outraged and heartbroken and empowered, often within the same chapter. I am so so glad Lee narrated this, as it made it so much more moving to listen to. I wish her many joyous and fulfilling years ahead.
