View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Mia is little and feeling utterly powerless. She has promised to keep a secret, but now this secret feels wrong. And now that she has played the secret game, she is frightened — frightened that “he” will be angry if she tells, frightened that no one will understand. Only her stuffed bear, Tikki, has seen everything and knows how much this secret hurts.

He comes again and again. Mia tries to stop him, but now he’s angry with her. If only she hadn’t made the promise. Then, Mia has an idea. Tikki has promised nothing. Maybe Tikki can speak to her mother and stop the hurt at last.

For children caught in abuse, there often seems to be no way out. Mia’s Secret offers a way and helps children see that even “trusted” adults are wrong to involve them in anything they cannot share with others. Written in clear, concise language and endorsed by The Gatehouse, Mia’s Secret is a reassuring read for the one in four children who eventually experience sexual abuse. And it’s an ounce of prevention for any child who might not otherwise recognize the signs that signal danger.

“Strong messages can often be delivered in gentle stories...This book offers reassurance and a way out to any child (statistics tell us one in four) who has experienced or will experience childhood sexual abuse. If read in conjunction with a frank but age-appropriate discussion, this book might offer an ounce of prevention or equip children with the language to discuss their own concerns.”
-Today’s Parent Toronto
