Product Description

Product Description

This real-life diary continues the story begun in the best-selling book, "Momma, Don't Hit Me!"

In this tale of child abuse in New Hampshire, readers discover what happened to Kevin, a preschool boy.

In the previous book, readers saw that the police were powerless to help Kevin. The state's child protection department was too overwhelmed and understaffed to do anything, either.

Kevin was at the mercy of abuse by his mother, Ann, and neglect by his father, Joe.

In this sequel, you'll learn more about Joe's darker side and how far Ann would go, putting her own needs ahead of Kevin's. You'll see how desperate Kevin became, reacting to the abuse and neglect. And, you'll find out what happened to Kevin.

It's not a "happily ever after" story, but it brings closure to Kevin's plight.

Based on a true story that unfolded in New Hampshire during 2011 - 2013.

4.0 out of 5 stars Compelling read... 3 Jun 2013

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Having read the first book and feeling greatly moved by it, I was very much looking forward to seeing what happened to Kevin and how the entire situation was handled.

This sequel follows the same diary format as the first book, and is equally as easy to read and well formatted. Although it is easy to read in the writing style, the story itself continues to be heart breaking and compelling. At points throughout the book I was reminded that this is a true story and saddened that a child could be treated in such a way.

I found the character break down at the start of the book very helpful in reminding me of who everyone is as it has been a while since I read the first book. My love for reading results in me getting through rather a lot of books, so remembering details can sometimes be difficult for me, but as soon as I read the character breakdowns everything came flooding back to me, and I was introduced to new people in this continuation.

I don't want to give too much away about the outcome of this book, as I think it is a story that needs to be read and heard about by as many people as possible. It raises issues of child abuse and what you, as an onlooker, can do to help the children. I always thought it would be a simple case of calling child services, but the knowledge I have learnt from the experiences shared in this book have definitely prepared me for what to do should I ever find myself in a similar situation.

Overall, I would definitely recommend reading this book. However, you should read `Momma, Don't Hit Me' first, as it will provide you with the story up to this point.

2.0 out of 5 stars Only just reaching average 29 Sep 2013
By sue
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read both these books as I was mildy curious of the outcome for Kevin. However, the author comes across to me as being an unpleasant individual and I got little feel that she was genuinely concerned for the child, more about judging the family and the neighbours. A comment about the "cheap and nasty" bit of furniture that the family took with them when they moved, summed the author up I felt.

The book was drawn out and full of assumptions. Not worth paying for in my opinion.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good luck Kevin 23 Sep 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
You talking about helping families who need help. Where was your help. I also hope that the money you make from. Those two books go to families or charities who need help. I was troubled with the first book and could not understand why you didn't bang on ann' s door when you heard Kevin scream. I also don't understand why you didn't took pictures when you saw Kevin hanging over the balcony or in his pant on the stairs. It also seem to me that you were very involved in things what wasn't any of your business in what was going on apart from the abuse. ANN also asked you to look after Kevin and you refused, why? Would this not have been the best opportunity to talk to Kevin and to look for bruises. You could not do in over a year what others did in weeks????????
