What was once easy has become complicated. Eden now despises what and who she once admired. What she thought she knew was suddenly proven to be incorrect. She knows she should tell someone what occurred, but she is unable to do so. Instead, she buries it. And she buries her former self.
“This book is heartbreaking on so many levels and follows the realistic journey of teen life through a particularly strong girl’s perspective when she experiences a terrible trauma.”
The Book Guide® Editor
This is the narrative of a young lady navigating the disappointments and agonizing sorrows of adolescence, of first love and first heartbreak, of friendships shattered and restored, all while learning to embrace a strength of survival concealed inside her heart that she never realized she possessed. This debut, told in four sections – freshman, sophomore, junior, and senior years – illustrates the deep scars of trauma.
