I was completely dumbfounded by Lee Benson's review of "Stolen Innocence" by Elissa Wall and Lisa Pulitzer ("Wall's book is lacking any heroes," June 6). His elitist, judgmental opinions only serve to perpetuate the chronic, abusive, polygamist lifestyle Wall was forced to endure. As an incest survivor, I can personally guarantee there was nothing this 14-year-old child could have done to have "made a difference."

Shame on Benson for blaming the victim.
