a truly gifted author,
This review is from: Beautiful Child: The story of a child trapped in silence and the teacher who refused to give up on her (Paperback)
I was given this book as a gift and was a wee bit apprehensive about reading it. Needless to say it was one of the best books I've ever read. Other books I have read on similar issues have been stomach-churning and difficult to read, but Torey made this book a very beautiful, moving read. I truly felt that all the children's personalities, from their laughter to their tears really shone through, especially Venus. I found myself personally willing her on. I'll definitely be purchasing the rest of the set.
