Publisher's Summary

Best-selling author and teacher Casey Watson shares the horrifying true story of Kiera Bentley, a 12-year-old girl with a deeply shocking secret she's too young to even understand.

When Casey first meets Kiera, a small, slight girl who's just lashed out at a fellow pupil in assembly, she immediately senses something's wrong. Something in Kiera's eyes alerts Casey that this is an "old head on young shoulders", and with Kiera's constant tiredness and self-soothing habit of pulling her hair out, she follows her instinct and takes Kiera under her wing.

At first the answer seems simple enough: Kiera's parents aren't together, and they don't get on, which makes life hard for Kiera, as she's so close to her dad. But as the weeks roll on, Casey begins to understand that there's something much darker going on behind closed doors. And when she finally learns the truth, she's terrified she won't be able to save Kiera from it.

    "Poor narrator"

    Tried my hardest to listen to this book but had to stop because of the narration. Very strange and irritating style, really bad attempts at accents and voice tone was painful to listen to. Shame

    "a stolen childhood"

    once again another good story, real life told by a great author, looking forward to reading another one of her books, they are gripping, sad in many cases but happy to know that people like Cassey care.

    Story
    "Terrible voices"

    The story was ok. The narrators various voices were painful to the ears at times. I wanted to give up but as I'd paid for this I persevered. I won't be buying a book read by this narrator again.
