Synopsis: Explains how a parent's worst nightmare came true for the author, a concerned working mother, when her daughter was among those involved in the notorious sexual abuse charges made against teacher Margaret Kelly Michaels of New Jersey's Wee Care child center.

From Library Journal: In 1985, journalist Crowley discovered that her four-year-old daughter Hannah was one of over 20 children at the Wee Care Preschool in suburban New Jersey who had been sexually molested by teacher Margaret Kelly Michaels. Here, Crowley describes with unflinching frankness and her reporter's sense of a good story the devastating effects of this discovery and the subsequent trial on her daughter, herself, her husband, and their two other children, as well as on the other children and families involved. Although this account avoids sensationalism, every reader will be thoroughly appalled at "Kelly's" activities, and every parent will learn to be more involved in their children's care and more alert to small but perhaps telling changes in their children's behavior. Recommended for public libraries. For another account of this case, see Lisa Manshel's Naptime , LJ 12/1/89.
