This story is heartbreaking but incredibly powerful. It is told from the point of view of an eight year girl, and you feel as if an eight year old is actually telling her story to you. The abuse that she endures is hard to stomach, but I think it is so important, because it gives a voice to children who might be in a similar situation (even though this is a work of fiction). The ending is incredible, you will never see it coming!
