Another Four Pounds of Pressure

A Sequel Memoir

After her debut memoir, Four Pounds of Pressure: A Memoir of Rape, Survival, and Taking Back My Power, took readers by storm, author and advocate, Danielle Leukam, knew the conversation wasn’t over.

Now, she’s giving us a front-row seat inside the case files, behind-the-scenes interviews, and a captivating retelling of how her abuser was brought to justice. Read from the investigator reports that recount the evidence uncovered. Discover a harrowing connection through lab report results that prove Danielle was not his only victim. Observe the interrogation of her abuser and Danielle’s compelling interviews that all led to his arrest.

Another Four Pounds of Pressure reveals the pivotal phases of this distressing case while also providing a transparent lens into the aftermath of the assault for Danielle and her family. The book entices readers with honest insight from the people indirectly impacted by this horrific event, in an effort to give secondary victims a voice of their own. It expands the depths to which Danielle is willing to share her story, disclosing some of the most challenging hurdles she had to jump–and is still trying to leap over–as she works to heal and move forward.

One thing that will never be in question is Danielle’s persistence in amplifying this narrative for survivors like her. She will only get louder.
