this harrowing story of child abuse is so real in the telling. I could feel chills as I read the story, unfortunately as if I were there. It was uncomfortable reading it, I felt helpless. Yet Diane WANTED the reader to feel that way, she WANTED for the reader to get up and do something about abuse. Perhaps if this becomes a best seller, it may raise awareness so that, one day, it will become something of the past. Sammy, you are truly a best friend to have stood by Diane as she had to deal with all the emotions of writing this story. No wonder you two are a dynamic duo of writing. Good luck to you both!

but instead, like ripples in the water, it goes on...and on...until the legacy is broken. That is what this story is about. Hope yearns for the day when she can be free of the torment that her mother heaps upon her. Day after day, she crosses off the calendar, until even that is not enough to know that it is one day closer to her emancipation. At age 16, she finally succumbs in an attempted suicide, then realizes that life can be beautiful after all...it just takes determination, spunk and a spirit of survival!
