520    "Don't tell her she needs to find closure. Don't ask her 
       to forgive and forget. When Kim was just 22, her older 
       brother, Ron Goldman, was brutally killed by O.J. Simpson.
       Ron and Kim were very close, and her devastation was 
       compounded by the shocking not guilty verdict that allowed
       a smirking Simpson to leave as a free man. It wasn't Kim's
       first trauma. Her parents divorced when she was young, and
       she and Ron were raised by their father. Her mother 
       kidnapped her, telling her that her father didn't love her
       any more. When she was 14, she was almost blinded from 
       severe battery acid burns on her face during an automobile
       accident, requiring three reconstructive surgeries. But 
       none of these early traumas compared to the loss of her 
       brother, the painful knowledge that his killer was free, 
       and fact that she could not even grieve privately-her 
       grief was made painfully public. Counseled by friends, 
       strangers, and even Oprah to "find closure," Kim chose a 
       different route. She chose to fight. Repeatedly, Kim and 
       her family pursued Simpson by every legal means. Foiled 
       over and over again, they ultimately achieved a small 
       measure of justice. Kim's story is one of tragedy, but 
       also of humanity and, often, comedy. Living life as one of
       America's most famous "victims" isn't always easy, 
       especially as a single mother in the dating market. She 
       often had bizarre first date experiences, with one man 
       even breaking down into tears and inconsolable with grief 
       after realizing who she was. Ultimately Kim's story is 
       that of an ordinary person thrown into extraordinary 
       circumstances at a very young age, and who had the courage
       -despite the discouragement of so many-to ignore the 
       conventional wisdom and never give up her fight for 
       justice"--|cProvided by publisher.
