A stunning and poignant account of an extraordinary teacher's determination from the author of the #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.

“not usually my kind of book...”

My friend lent me a copy of this book a week ago and I've just finished it. Couldn't put it down! Every chapter is a cliff hanger. A brilliant read but it saddens me to know that it is based on a true story.... More

The book however, is emotionally disturbing and is not a happy book to read... More
