This was the first book I ever read about child abuse. It's still as sad and shocking on my second read of it. Some of the things that happen to Sheila bring me to tears. I can't even begin to imagen what it must be like for a six year old to have gone through all that. Torey is a fantastic teacher. She has helped so many kids. It's also sad to see where the education system puts their budget above these children. They need these sorts of classes. It's not fair on them or the other children if they keep mainstreaming them. Some of them need the indivdual care that you just wouldn't get in your run-of-the-mill classroom. There is a second book about Sheila which I shall read shortly.
