New Book by SESAME friend Andrea Clemens

SESAME friend Andrea Clemens' new book: Invisible Target is now available.  SESAME highly recommends Andrea's courageous story.

invisible target

Over the past several years, I turned my personal experience into a book titled Invisible Target. Below is a short summary of the book.

Nearly 1 in 10 students between kindergarten and their senior year of high school will experience some sort of sexual harassment by a school employee. That equals 4.5 million students.

Invisible Target is a true, detailed account of one girl’s experience of sexual abuse at the hands of her middle school teacher. It follows her journey, beginning with her tumultuous childhood, meeting the teacher, and the grooming process he created to lure her into a false sense of trust and ultimate betrayal. Years of abuse and manipulation finally culminated where she was able to bravely break away from him.

Ten years later, after reclaiming her life and freedom, she was contacted by local police, indicating that this teacher was in custody for statutory rape of two fourteen year old girls. In the midst of local media attention, her statement to the police was pivotal in assisting the District Attorney to secure a plea bargain from the teacher, where he was previously claiming he was innocent.

With excerpts from newspaper articles and actual court impact statements from the victims, this book gives the reader a clear picture of how the prevalent epidemic of educator sexual abuse begins, progresses, and affects so many innocent lives.

This book will serve as a strong educational tool for students, parents, teachers, and administrators by shedding light on the dynamics of educator sexual abuse, so schools can be safe havens for every child.
