This is a heatbreaking true story that I could not put down and read from cover to cover in one sitting. This is a story that will cause the worst nightmares about the sadistic abuse parents inflict on a child and the saving grace of a determined teacher.

This was a fascinating story that I stayed up late to finish in one night.

When a Special Education teacher begins to see clues that Jadie, one of her students, might be the victim of possible ritualistic sexual abuse, she digs deeper and ultimately must come forward with her suspicions.

This is a haunting, riveting read!

Ultimately a testament to the powers of caring and commitment, this is the story of an traumatized eight-year-old who refused to speak due to sexual abuse and possible exposure to satanic rituals.

Anyone who likes Torey Haydens books will like this one. Like all of her books this is about a girl that has many problems and Torey tries to help her. Torey has an excellent writing style, very interesting and keeps you interested throughout.

First I've read of this author and probably the last.

It's a heartbreaking story of a little girl with an obvious problem and with the help of Hayden it brought forth an investigation into abuse, sexually and mentally. I didn't finish it but by half way thought it was just repeating over and over and skipped to the back to read the ending pages.

You kind of have to have a strong stomach to read this.

This book was disturbing beyond my wildest imagination. Since it is apparently based on a true story, that made it all the worse. It was well written, but made me exceptionally uncomfortable, which I suppose, is exactly what it was meant to do. Don't think I'll be reading any more of this author's stories.

Not what I expected. Pace was excruciatingly slow and ending was a let down from what I'd hoped to find out.
