This book was very sad.When i read it brought tears to my eyes.Why would someone hurt a child who doesnt do anything but obey by the rules.Even though it was sad it was also good to see her parents get what they deserve. Briana H. Timber Creek High School Class of 2014

I first read this book when i started monroe collage after my son turned a year old in 1999 and ill always remember this story 4 more then 1 reason yet the main thing that stands out is the fact that ursela's mother choose 2 not stand up 4 her daughter & how her mother just let this man come into her home and kill the only person in the world that really needed and trusted her. this book is very good and its a book ive told people 2 read cuz it will change lives if only after peolpe c it in front of them on paper & come 2 understand it takes a community 2 raise a child. ONE PERSON CAN MAKE A CHANGE!

I read this book a few years ago. My best friend was in nursing school and it was a required read for one of her classes. She handed it on to me and both I and my mother read it. It's heartbreaking, but I highly suggest it to anyone who wants to have their eyes opened. I'm going to have my boyfriend read it as well.

This book was given to me in 6th grade about 17 years ago. I myself went through a very abusive home from my mother and father. I was lucky though. I was able to leave my parents home. A friend gave me this book in hopes that I would speak up. It took me 7 years to do so. But I did. I feel free. It is very tragic when some one goes through this, young or old. We all need to PRAY for the children and elderly of this world for safety from these terrible things. Christina

This book was very sad yet interesting. Its about a true story on a little five year old girl who lost her life by her mothers abusive boyfriend and the mother did nothing to stop him from abusing her young child. The book is based on her last week being alive and the strugle such a young child had to go through that no child should go through.I recomend it to everyone, you just have to be able to read about child abuse because it gives details on how the guy abused her.

I remember reading this book in 4th grade. Its has stuck to me ever sence. I think the fact that her Dad had her initials USA is one of the only part that made me smile. This is a heart touching book i dont think i could ever forget this sad story. I would greatly encourage anyone old or young to read this book. No child should ever have to go threw anything like that. I cant believe anyone would do anything of that nature to a 5 year old who never did anything wrong to deserve that reaction.

I was assigned this book to read 10 years ago while in high school. It stayed with me ever since. It is very hard to find, I suggest if you are able to get a copy do it it will be worth it. A very sad story, one of the only books that made my hard shell crack and cry.

I am a teacher and read this book when I used to substitute during college. Now I work at the school where Ursula would've attended. There is a park named Sunshine Park right next to our school named after her. It touched my heart deeply.

THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS I HAVE EVER READ. IF YOU LIKE THIS THAN I WOULD ALSO RECCOMEND 'I KNOW MY FIRST NAME IS STEVEN'. THESE ARE DEFINATLEY BOOKS THAT WILL NOT ONLY MAKE YOU CRY BUT MOTIVATE YOU TO HELP THESE POOR INNOCENT CHILDREN LIKE URSULA.

I first read this book when I was in 4th grade. I was only 10, and read it in one day. I am now 20 years old, and never forgot this heart breaking story. I always tried to find it again, but never did remember it's title. I would recommend this book to parents or gaurdians everywhere that raise a child poorly. This is absolutley a book to be read.

I am in an early childhood development class and we are currently reading this book as part of the requirement for the unit on child abuse. I just got to the part when Ursula dies and it makes me sick to see how Don reacted when he found out. I mean, first he makes her stand outside under a tree, makes her march around the house saying her alphabet or counting and beats her when she messes up, he doesn't feed her anything but soap, doesn't let her have water, and he finally beats her so bad that she can't move by herself. After all of that he holds her and says he loves her and he didn't mean to do it. I'm sorry but he was just demented. And for her own mother to stand by and watch as her daughter is tortured and killed because she loves him more is just rediculous. I almost cried today when I was reading it. I know the rest of the class was crying, even my teacher. I think this book is a must-read because it informs you about what is going on in some houses and makes you want to put a stop to it. I can't wait to finish reading it.

I read this when I was in fifth grade and that was eight years ago. I've read many books, but never has any of the them touched me like this one. I couldn't recall the title of the book or the little girl, but her story stayed with me all of these years. When I hear of child abuse cases I can't help, but remember the tears and heartache just reading it. Ursala will never be able to tell her story herself, but this book is the next best thing for people to hear and feel the pain innocent children go through.

When I was in the police academy, this book was required reading for my criminal investigations class. Everyone should read this book and become aware that this kind of thing has happened and, unfortunately, will continue to happen. This book opens your eyes and helps you to look for signs of child abuse and maybe prevent the same outcome as what happened to the innocent child in this book. If you read this book, you will get sick, you will cry, and you will feel many emotions, so get ready. And after you read it, give you child a hug.

I read this book in junior high 12 years ago and the subject touches me even more today. It clearly shows the signs to look for to help protect the inicent. If any good could have come from this is to help adults to not be afraid to stick up for a child that is to scared to tell.

I read this book while I was in college I had to do a report for my criminology class and I did the topic on child abuse. I cried while I read this book, your heart goes out ursula. My God That poor child, how could a mother let someone do something like that to her own child. I cried through my whole presentation!!!! everyone should have a copy of this book!

I read this book a few years ago and I 'loved' it. It was so sad and emotionally draining, but it was intense and wonderful all at the same time. But, what really got to me was the next day when I told my friend, Maria, that I had read the book. Her response was, 'She was my best friend.' I about started crying then. Ursila lived only two houses down from Maria's. It's freaky to think I had been so close to where all this happened... Man, it was just a totally intense thing - reading this book. I recomend it to anyone and everyone.

This was a great book. But it was very sad. I read this book when i was about 13 and yes it made me cry. I cant beleive that anyone could bring themselves to do the kind of things Don did to this child. I lived in the neighborhood across from hers and she went to the same school as me when i was about 6. I never knew her but i would have liked to. Of course she was no longer going to that school when i started because she was killed. So this story is very touching. I think everyone should read read it.

I read this book in the seventh grade, and I could never remember the name of the book. Now I have my own copy and I am sharing it with everyone I know. This book is so powerful. The pain and horror that this little girl goes through, jumps off the pages into the readers heart, and makes you love her. Children are precious, and this book makes you appreciate the warmth and joy that a child can bring.

The first time I read this book was in 1992 and I have been looking for it ever since. This book makes you feel things you may have never felt before. It makes you love another person you have never even known. I think it's a shame what happened to this poor girl and a shame that everyone doesn't know her story. It is definately an eye opener. I cried through just about the whole book. You will find yourself loving her. Then you wish you could save her and you wish you could confront the evil that hurt her. I strongly urge you to read this book and learn to look out for others.
