    " The deep dark secret was that this woman was crazy. Which was easy to figure out at the begining. I guess there was one more secret which I won't give away. This is not one of Ms. Roby's better books. My book club picks one of her books every year so I had to read this one for the club. "

    " This book was just okay. First I'm not sure if it's written for an adult audience. I think that Roby attempted to convey a message to young people that sexual abuse is not normal and not ok however I didn't get a clear understanding of what she was trying to tell the reader about what to do in the case that it is happening to them. If I were a child being abused and read this book, in the end I would still be questioning, should I tell or shouldn't I tell. The book was very rushed, I wish the characters had been developed more and I really disliked how Roby keep illustrating scenes of Jillian being abused. I think there is a creative way to get the message across of what was happening to her without detailing it so much throughout the book. Last but not least it was way too predictable. I was able to figure the book out in the first few paragraphs. Definitely not one of her better books. "

    " Not a realistic depiction of child abuse from a child's perspective. And the story became too predictable. Not recommended. "
