I thought of this book today because of the passing of actor/producer, etc. Tom Laughlin ("Billy Jack"). Many years ago he'd wanted to make this into a movie but was never able to. It would have been fantastic. I read this so many years ago and it was touching and terrible and just wonderful. So sad that this type of thing could happen to a child but I know it probably goes on all the time. Real tear-jerker but wonderful book. Still think it should become a film!

I read this book a few years ago and I can still remember the tears rushing down my face when I learned the history of this little girl! I recommend this book to anyone and everyone! If many people read it it could change the world! This book is a tear-jerker, but it is worth the read! I loved it, despite the horrendously sad tone! I also recommend "Damaged" by Cathy Glass!

This book captured my attention from the very first chapter to the very last, I read it in the sixth grade. For me to read was very unusual because I never found a book that interested me enough to read past the first chapter.

It was a very heart wrenching story that I'll never forget, I wondered in amazement how a mother could be so cruel that she would harm her own child & do something so terrible that would forever change the life of this innocent victim. This was such a traumatic experience to this child and no one ever took the time to try to reach out to her until this one person stepped up to break through the barriers this child had shielded herself with at such a very young age.

This was a real tear jerker for me that I¿ll forever remember.

I love this book! It showed me that I should be glad I don't have a life like this little girl. I'm glad I don't.
