"Torey Hayden deserves the kind of respect I can't give many people. She isn't valuable, she's incredible. The world needs more like Torey Hayden." – Boston Globe
"A testament to the powers of caring and commitment." Publishers Weekly.
"An amazing story."
“A skilful storyteller… Torey Hayden writes vividly about the challenges and frustrations of working with disturbed children.” Washington Post Book World
This is a stunning and poignant account of an extraordinary teacher's determination from the author of the No. 1 "Sunday Times" bestsellers "The Tiger's Child" and "One Child". Jadie never spoke, never laughed, never cried. She spent every waking hour locked in her own private world of shadows. But nothing in Torey Hayden's experience had prepared her for the nightmare Jadie revealed to her when finally persuaded to break her self-imposed silence. It was a story too painful, too horrific for Hayden's professional colleagues to acknowledge. But Torey Hayden could not close her ears or her heart. A little girl was trapped in a living hell of unspeakable memories. And it would take every ounce of courage, compassion, and love that one remarkable teacher possessed to rid the "Ghost Girl" of the malevolent spirits that haunted her.See all Product description

I find it shocking that two professionals were aware of what Jadie was saying, yet sat around for months on end, partly because they wouldn't accept that such horrific things really do happen! I found it especially worrying that Arkie still tried to say Jadie was making it all up because she was mentally disturbed, even after learning all three girls had been medically examined and even the 15 month old baby showed signs.
I feel they could have done more.
Shocking and disturbing things DO happen, and it was wrong of them to dub a child a liar.
