About this title

Synopsis:

This is a novel of tremendous insight and appeal. Robert Cormier

Mandy Baker was sexually abused when she was eight. Now, eight years later, Mandy is experiencing problems that she cannot solve on her own. In this candid, stirring novel, Weinstein writes sensitively and believably about an important, timely issue. Publishers Weekly

I was afraid this novel would be a graphic and uncomfortable story of sexual abuse. But no. The author doesn't give the gory details of the attack on Amanda when she was eight. Instead, she focuses on how this experience, which Amanda's family acknowledges but refuses to discuss, continues to affect her as a teenager. It's so empathetically written, I especially recommend it. Sassy Magazine

One of the few fictional accounts to consider the long-term effects of sexual trauma. The Midwest Book Review

Explores not only the tragic aftermath of rape, but also the intricately knotted ties that bind mothers and daughters. Booklist

It is the ordinariness of Ms. Weinstein's characters and setting, and the spare, no frills writing style that make this novel so shocking . . .haunting and powerful . . .We are left hopeful in the end. Children's Book Review Service

A must for all young adult collections. WLW Journal

Nominated for two American Library Association awards, voted a "Best Book" by the New York Public Libraries, No More Secrets is a true story. No More Secrets focuses on a young girl and how she struggles to overcome not only her sexual abuse, but her family's refusal to talk about it.

From the Publisher:

It wasn't exactly rape. At least, that's what the policeman told my mother. With these words, sixteen-year-old Mandy Baker begins to tell her story of what happened to her long ago, and how it has affected her ever since. Mandy, a strong, funny and sometimes lonely teenager, struggles with memories on her own and how they prevent her from getting close to her best friend, Steffie, and the new boyfriend she's crazy about, Paul.
