Rated 0

Family & home stories (Children's / Teenage)

From debut author Sonja K. Solter comes a sensitive, harrowing and ultimately hopeful novel in verse about one girl's journey in the aftermath of sexual abuse.

When you know what I know, you'll wish you didn't.

It's not the kind of thing you can talk about at school, or at the park, or anywhere, with a new friend or an old one, or even with your sister. (She's too little.)

But it's everywhere once you know, once you can't not know. In your face, under your eyelids. If you turn your back on it, there it is anyway.

One day after school, in the basement on the couch, Tori's uncle did something bad. Afterwards, Tori did the right thing and told her mom. But even if it was the brave thing to do, her mom still didn't believe her at first. Her grandma still takes his side. And Tori doesn't want anyone else--even her best friend--to know what happened.

Over the course of the following year, Tori finds herself battling mixed emotions--anger, shame and sadness-as she deals with the trauma. But with the help of her mom, little sister Taylor, her best friend and others, Tori will find a way to have the last word.
