Beautiful, poignant, and heartbreaking. A young girl describes, in poetry, her pain from her father's betrayal. Laurie was first sexually approached by her father when she was nine, and now, at age eleven, is bursting with hurt and helplessness. Will she have the courage to tell someone? Who will believe her, if her own mother won't?
Yes, this is a children's books, and praise be to heaven that there are children's books like this. I wish they were more popular, more accepted, more circulated. Ki
