Life becomes complex and terror-filled for 12-year-old Cassie when she is fondled by the father of the children she baby sits. This novel explores the conflicting emotions of an early adolescent who cannot fathom why an adult male would find her attractive, and the concern of parents who must protect their daughter while exposing a dangerous individual.

About the Author:

Marilyn Reynolds is the author of Baby Help, But What about Me?, Too Soon for Jeff, Detour for Emmy, and Beyond Dreams. Her essays have appeared in the Chicago Tribune, Los Angeles Times, Dallas Morning News, and San Francisco Chronicle. She lives in Gold River, California.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 5-8?Cassie is a typical 12-year-old girl. She is inexperienced but curious about sex and depends on her older cousin Lisa for straight talk and honest information. When new neighbors move in, Cassie's life suddenly becomes much more interesting. Fred and Angie Sloane are young, attractive, and fun, and they treat Cassie like a grown-up. She soon spends all of her free time helping them fix up their home and babysitting for their two children. Life with the Sloanes seems nearly perfect until the night Fred puts his hands on Cassie in a way she never expects. Overwhelmed with conflicting emotions, she confides in Lisa, who promises secrecy. But when it happens again, and again, Lisa tells. Confronted with the truth, Cassie must face her parents, the Sloanes, and eventually, herself. In this frank, yet sensitive portrayal of child molestation, Reynolds has done a superb job of weaving the complexities of difficult issues into the life of an innocent child. The characters are believable and sympathetic, especially Cassie and her adolescent friends. Even when faced with such ugliness in her life, she can still occasionally giggle about boys, pass notes in English class, and have pillow fights with her best friend. Her story resonates with authenticity, and it will surely touch many readers.?Marilyn Makowski, Greenwood High School, SC
