Gabriella Wise will donate all profits from her self-published YA novel What Little Remains to the Center for Women and Families through the month of April.
Like Wise, The Center for Women and Families is based in Kentucky. It offers services to survivors of sexual abuse and partner violence, including men and LGBTQIA+ people, and has been running for over 100 years.
What Little Remains follows Charlie, a girl in post-apocalyptic Virginia who is fighting to survive after losing her family. When she meets a survivor named Nicole, Charlie begins to realize that the world around her is not all it seems.
“Domestic violence and sexual assault are topics brought up in my book,” wrote Wise on her blog. “While Ricky and Charlie’s relationship is purely fictional, the emotional and physical abuse present in their relationship is suffered by many people every day. With Nicole’s story, I wanted to highlight the resilience of sexual assault survivors. Nicole’s character shows great strength and courage.”
