Gadis empat belas tahun itu bertubuh kurus, berambut keriting warna oranye menyala, dan bergaya ala punk. Bila Torey Hayden berpapasan dengannya di jalan, dia takkan pernah mengenalinya sebagai Sheila, gadis kecil cantik berambut pirang lurus yang dulu pernah menjadi muridnya. Tapi, itulah Sheila kini. Sheila remaja. Tujuh tahun setelah berpisah dengan Torey.

As a severely abused individual I related to this story. I grew up non trusting and still to this day aged 29 I cannot take. Sheila the beautiful little girl in this story went through hell and back, and worse still was all at such a young age. A teacher, this wonderful Author Torey Hayden too this little girl under her wing, she was blessed with patients and best yet her heart was full of love, love for children, love for job, and she believed in the children she taught and cared for.

Após o livro "A criança que não queria falar", esta continuação deixou-me sem palavras. É uma mudança brusca na atitude de Sheila, antes uma menina calma e bonita em relação a Torey Hayden mas depois alguém selvagem devido a Tprey a ter abandonado. Mostra-nos a continuação e a persistência de Torey em ajudar a sua querida menina.

Torey Hayden sempre me fascinou, e já li uns quantos livros dela mas penso que "a criança que não queria falar" e "a menina que nunca chorava" são os melhores livros de
The Tiger's Child, the sequel to Torey Hayden's "One Child", I felt was not as good as "One Child". I do commend Torey on all the dedication that she has shown this child throughout all of the years, even after they lost contact with eachother for years, the connection still was there and brought them back together. It was good to find out that "Sheila" survived all of the ordeals that was tossed her way and had gotten on with her life. I was disappointed though on the career path that she had c ...more

Torey akhirnya menyelesaikan sekolahnya dan kembali mencari Sheila. Dia mengetahui perubahan pada diri Sheila dan mencoba memperbaikinya. Ternyata Sheila telah menjadi seperti benang kusut setelah Torey meninggalkannya. Dia tidak mau lagi mengingat masa lalu dan menjadi seorang gadis dengan kepribadian yang sangat jauh berbeda dari sebelumnya.

Mengetahui hal tersebut, Torey mencoba mencari alasan mengapa Sheila berubah dan menemukan masa lalu yang kelam dalam kehidupan Sheila sejak mereka berpisa

I found this book in short depressing. That wonderful little girl we meet in One Child is long gone. She feels confused and angry at the world. To be honest I can see why she does. Not only her mother leaving her but her teacher as well? And then living with her good for nothing father. Probably being abused at foster homes... the list goes on and on. As far as I'm concerned she does have a reason to rant and rave at the world. Also time and time again she mentions how things seemed different to ...more
This is a story I read years ago and just recently revisited. As a pediatric and psych nurse, I have always been a fan of Hayden's books. This is the rare story that goes beyond what Hayden does in the special needs classroom with a five or six year old and actually gives us a glimpse of one of her students (Sheila) into early adulthood. This is the sequel to, One Child.

Many readers comment that they don’t like this book as much as Hayden’s others. It has a different feel to it for sure since it

Very interesting to read this follow-up to "One Child" and hear what later became of Sheila. I found the idea fascinating that Torey might actually have done as much harm as good in her way of treating Sheila back when she was 6. I can totally see both how Sheila (and her dad) might have seen it that way, and how horrified Torey would have been to discover that could have been the case.

I didn't like this book quite as much as "One Child" though. Torey really didn't come off in the best light her

One in a series in which Hayden recalls her work as a teacher and therapist for psychologically disturbed children. In this particular book, she reconnects with Sheila, a six-year-old girl she worked with in a previous book who was prone to violent rages and elective mutism. Sheila is a teenager now, and by tracking the course of her life this book squarely confronts some of the difficulties inherent in the 1-year school approach, and in Hayden's books themselves. It's incredibly meta-analytical ...more

Buku ini merupakan sambungan dari buku Sheila: Luka Hati Seorang Gadis Kecil. Sekarang Sheila sudah berusia 14 tahun, namun masih penuh dengan masalah.

Saya lebih menikmati membaca kisah pertama dari kehidupan Sheila. Dalam buku pertama tersebut, saya lebih dapat merasakan pergumulan dan emosi Torey Hayden dalam menghadapi Sheila. Mungkin juga karena Sheila yang sekarang sudah lebih bisa ditangani daripada Sheila kecil berusia 6 tahun. Tapi, tetap sebuah buku yang menarik, khususnya bagi pembaca

Novel ini menuturkan kisah hidup seorang anak (Sheila) yang memiliki emosi sangat labil, akibat masa lalunya yang suram. Sebenarnya kisah Sehila yang diangkat oleh Torey, bukanlah satu-satunya kisah nyata, karena mungkin ada banyak anak-anak lain yang bernasib seperti Sehila;dari keluarga miskin yang broken, pernah dilecehkan secara seksual dan ditelantarkan. Akibatnya Sheila yang sebenarnya memiliki kemamapuan luar biasa dalam hal Iq dengan nilai di atas 180, justru memiliki banyak kendala dala ...more

Bought this book on the 5th of April, 2014 from a gift shop at a hospital where I had an appointment. Started reading and am not able to keep the book down ( even though I have my finals this Friday). It is a love story of different kind. The expansion and growth of a relationship over number of years. A student and a teacher, friends, sisters, mother and a daughter. You name it.

Its also the study of mind. How it works and how it confuses us, how much it change through out time and eats at your
Ini buku lama, tapi uniknya saya baru mulai baca beberapa hari kemarin dan menyelesaikan baca tadi. Ini bukan buku hasil membel. Ini buku pinjaman dari perpustakaan kabupaten. Hehe. Soalnya, pulang ke rumah, tiba-tiba ada buku nganggur di meja, dan kata adik saya itu dia pinjam tapi tak ia baca.

Awalnya saya tidak berminat baca. Karena bingung mau ngapain sementara buku-buku di rumah sudah saya baca, saya dengan malas membaca buku berjudul Sheila ini. Ini buku serial Sheila yang kedua, buku nonfi

Oke baiklah, sebenarnya buku ini sudah selesai dibaca beberapa minggu yang lalu. Namun, belum sempat juga menulis reviewnya, hingga akhirnya malam ini yeay :)

Langsung saja, buku ini bercerita tentang apa?
Buku ini adalah buku lanjutan dari Sheila: Luka Hati Seorang Gadis Kecil yang menceritakan kehidupan Sheila setelah tujuh tahun berpisah dari Torey. Sheila kini sudah remaja dan menjalankan hidupnya, masih dengan beberapa masalah seakan-akan dunia tidak banyak berubah.

This book is written by a psychologist about one of her patients, Sheila. Sheila is a very bright kid but she, unfortunately, comes from a very disturbed background. This background causes her to do stuff that are inhumane and intolerable. Sheila was appointed to go to class with Hayden, the author, as she was a special needs teacher. When sheila and Hayden first meet Sheila does not want to talk to her. Slowly but surely however, they begin to develop a very strong relationship. Hayden realises ...more

Kisah nyata lebih sering tidak lebih indah daripada kisah fiksi. Begitupun Sheila si gadis nyentrik pendiam yang meledak-ledak di buku ini. Sebesar apapun harapan untuk melihatnya bersikap manis dan stabil dalam waktu yang sedikit lebih panjang, kenyataannya kondisi emosionalnya memang tidak (atau belum) memungkinkannya pulih 100%. Entah sampai kapan ia pulih, atau akankah ia pulih.

Kisah fiksi memang sering menawarkan keindahan, namun tak jarang yang terjebak pada sekadar menawarkan keindahan at

questo libro è la continuazione di Una Bambina.
la storia di Sheila continua che non più bambina diventa adolescente.
un'adolescente arrabbiata, in fuga, instabile, bisognosa di amore, bisognosa di significati.
Sheila e Torey, la sua maestra si reincontrano dopo anni.
ed è qualcosa di emozionante e struggente. bello, lieve e forte nello stesso momento.
qualcosa di burrascoso che poi prende equilibrio ed è un continuo divenire.

After Sheila had left Torey Hayden's School for children with special needs, she is now grown up. Sheila is 13 going on 14 and more understanding. She is in a very good High School, and her father has stopped drinking, he is a new man now. Desperately seeking her mother Sheila has put an ad out in the paper looking for her. She writes letters to a complete stranger pretending that she is her mother but when she is supposed to meet her, no one is there. Torey Hayden still had that magical connec ...more

Very emotional and touching.....that’s my opinion about this book.

Just like the first book, the focus of this book is about the relationship between Torey and Sheila. This time, the relationship is going more complicated than before, now Sheila is 14 years old and now she is very different from several years ago, and Torey couldn’t imagine if the girl in front of her is Sheila. In addition, Sheila accused Torey had given her a chance and opportunity to live like another ordinary kids, unfortunat

Now this was an interesting book, following on from Torey Hayden's earlier true life book, called One Child. It's about the same girl as in One Child, a gifted and exceptional girl called Sheila. Except that in this book Sheila has grown up and she did not see her past life the same as Torey had done.

Torey worked with maladjusted kids who had had awful lives. She sounds like a concerned, committed teacher. This book describes how when she meets "Sheila" the girl has turned into an interesting a

"Torey Hayden deserves the kind of respect I can't give many people. She isn't just valuable, she's incredible. The world needs more like Torey Hayden." Boston Globe

I couldn't agree more to what the Boston Globe said. I was just wandering around the mall killing some time before I meet my friend when I decided to enter a bookstore (but promised myself to just only browse and never buy a book since my money was running low). When I saw One Child, I knew I just couldn't let it go and have to bring
Setiap buku yang saya baca itu pasti memiliki kenangan. Baik itu kenangan lucu, aneh, mengharukan, dsb. Karena itu, biasanya saya membubuhkan data yang sangat lengkap di setiap buku yang saya beli. Mulai dari nama, tanggal beli, harga ketik beli, tanda tangan, dan juga belinya dimana (khususnya kalau belinya itu di event2 tertentu atau sama orang tertentu). Bagi saya, setiap buku tidak hanya mengandung cerita di dalamnya saja, tapi juga ada cerita di balik itu.

Seperti halnya buku Sheila yang ked
I read this book right after One Child, and I recall initially being kinda depressed by it. I was so sad that all the effort the teacher put into that child when she was little didn't have a better effect, sooner, in her life. Also, the teacher-cum-therapist had a totally inappropriate relationship with the child as she grew older, and I was subtly bothered by that, too. You know that she was doing all of those things from a good place in her heart, but she got too involved.... And I think that' ...more
This book follows on from One Child and you really need to have read One Child before embarking on this story. I have recently read One Child and was completely absorbed with Torey and Sheila's story but this book left me feeling disappointed. I don't know if it was because it wasn't classroom based, like Torey's other books, or whether I didn't like the fact that Shelia had grown up. It picks up with Torey finding Shelia, a child she had previously had in her classroom and helped overcome a lot ...more

No livro A Criança Que Não Queria Falar fui confrontada com uma estória verídica e profundamente comovente, capaz de me levar às lágrimas. Este livro traz-nos a continuação desta estória. No entanto, para Torey e Sheila não é bem uma continuação, mas sim uma repetição de todo o processo, uma vez que Sheila, agora com 13 anos, não se recorda da sua relação com a professora.

Mais uma vez, Torey narra uma estória muito forte psicologicamente
Found this in a hotel room (excited to find a book in English) and as a teacher was keen to read about the development of a child through eyes of a teacher/psychologist. The growth of the child was remarkable, and her own reflections and reawakening of repressed memories was interesting. The story kept me engaged, as there was rounding out of all 'characters' as well.

Sheila was a deeply disturbed six year -old when shwe came into Torey Hayden's life - a story poignantly chronicled in One Child. Over the course of five remarkable months, this dedicated special-education teacher profoundly touched the life of this abandoned, abused little girl. Then Torey lost touch with the child she had helped to free from a hellish inner prison of rage and silence. But seven years later, Shelia was back, now a gangly teenager with bright orange hair - no longer broken and l ...more
The Tiger's Child is a follow-up to Torey Hayden's book One Child. I found this book a little bit more difficult to get through than the first one. In One Child you can't help but love Shelia and want to see her succeed. Shelia is reintroduced in this book as a teenager. In addition to her being a normal obnoxious, moody teenager she is still dealing with all of the issued that plagued her childhood.

The one thing that I did really like about this book is the fact that it shows how real life does
