This book addresses some very serious issues and the absolute importance for parents to communicate with their children so they can make INFORMED decisions! This book is not appropriate for children to read due to some graphic sexual and repeated rape scenarios. Great book for parents with a very important message on keeping the lines of communication open with your kids and making them aware that predators are not always strangers!

While this is one of the most horrific stories I've ever read, what troubles me even more is the thought that these issues and situations are someone's reality. Heatbreaking! Excellent story, well-written and completely engaging.

This hard hitting book by Aynoit Ashor gets under your skin and makes you think about how deep family secrets go. It will make your uneasy but draw you in with the first page of the book. The book deals with sex, drugs, rape, and incest and is not for the faint of heart or for people who are sensitive to these things being written down for the world to see. It was pretty unsettling but mesmerizing. I would recommend this book for readers who like to think and don't mind being unsettled by the subject matter. It's a psychological tale of abuse. Don't read this if the subject matter offends you. Keep in mind not all books have a happy ending and sometimes I think that is important. The happy ending of this book is not what you expect. I give this 5 stars as I liked how it made taboo topics open for people to read. Hopefully it will help someone to know that they aren't the only ones experiencing these things.

I was not happy with the ending. I know that these things happened but the ending was horrid. I felt the author could have written a better ending.

That book really opens your eyes to the sick people in this world. We have to do anything to protect our children even talking about such uncomfotable situations like this. I hope this book will help parents talk to their children about how sick people prey on theur innocence. Please protect these innocent children

This was such a good read that I had to go back and read it a 2nd time. Goodness gracious! You had to pay attention because the twists on this was serious. It was a shame how it ended and boy would I like to see the author make a 2nd part of this just to see if that son gets caught cause she has that cigarette butt in her hand. I am often reading 2 sometimes 3 books at a time but I had to stop reading on my Nook and let my daughter read this and she couldn't believe this story either so she had her younger cousin read it too. Definitely one of the best but saddest short stories I've ever read. Good Job Aynoit!

So sad....

This will be my first review on B&N and the first book I brought using the Nook!! This book was a short read (probably finished within two hours to round it off), but the message I received was loud and clear!! I thought this book would be a great read for teenage girls (maybe H.S. aged) and young women immediately when I was done reading, however I do not think it is appropriate for younger children due to sexual and rape situations. This book can probably give some insight to teenagers on why their parent/guardian might come across as being "overprotective" , "nosy", and unfortunately how parents are not forthcoming and vague when answering questions that they might have. This is definitely good for parents and guardians. Parents and guardians if you choose to buy this for a teenager please make sure you read the book first and use your own judgement if you feel it is appropriate for the teenager to read it. I hope this book can help open the lines of communication between families with not only the topics that are presented in this short read, but in general!

The author courageously brings out an often preventable yet fatal social flaw of abuse and molestation. It's not a fairytale nor an embelishment of this cruel and ignored reality. The reader definately leaves with a lesson learned and the author's message is clear: this is real and should be address to better protect those who would otherwise fail into the wolf's trap.

I read this book in a matter of a few hours. Though it is short, it has a very powerful underlying message!!! This book stresses the importance of HONEST COMMUNICATION between parents and their children. I was saddened by the events that occurred with the main character, but the devastation of it all is so necessary!!

This story almost made me cry but mostly made me think about the girls and boys who go through human sex trafficking.The best part about the book is that it isnt meant for you to feel sad and give up hope but to trust God no matter the circumstance.

Wow family secrets sure will do something to the whole family. Even though you think you may be keeping a secret to protect your mother, brother, uncle, sister or child... that secret could effect everyone in a major way. This was my first time reading from Aynoit Ashor but I have a feeling it wont be the last because it seems like there is going to be a part 2 to this at least i really hope so. The author writes the story in a way to make you feel like your viewing whats happening but this is done to have the readers think and think that maybe they know someone like this or who this can happen to. The subject of the story line could be a little offensive to someone reading it who may know someone one or have been someone who experienced this type of abuse. I think this is a story many woman and even men should read to get an insight to this sort of thing could be happening to anyone. This book tackles what happens when one person has a family secret and they try to keep it away from the people that they love. Its good to sheild people from some things but to have them completly out in the dark about things could always backfire and thats exactly what happened in this story. You cant help but feel bad for both the daughter and the mother in this story because of the things they had to be subjected to. Especially towards the middle and end you will feel really bad for the mother because of her daughters actions. When reading this as an adult i realized why my mother always wanted to know where i was going.. it wasnt to be nosye but rather to keep me safe if anything were to happen to me. I hope that there is going to be a part 2 the ending to this was crazy and left me wondering why.. . good job from this author. **Nook Readers**

I thought this book was poorly written. I understand what the author was trying to do. It could have been a great moral tale. But, there was hardly any character development and the storyline went left at the end. I think the author can hone their craft because there definitely is a potentially good writer there.
