Ebby
Oct 17, 2008 rated it it was amazing
Probably the best psychology book for children I have ever read. The author handles this unsavory subject with refreshing openness, and provides helps for families going through this type of crisis - for both the abused, and the abuser. The author recognizes that true healing and deliverance can only come from God.

Also has really beautiful illustrations.
