"Mary MacCracken had reservations about having eight year old Hannah Rosnic in her class of three emotionally disturbed boys. They had made progress under Mary's care, and Hannah, who had a reputation for being withdrawn and possibly retarded, would only be a disruptive influence. But when mary first encountered Hannah- wearing a woman's housedress, her red gold hair tangled with chewing gum, alternately screaming and sobbing and acting more like an animal than a little girl Mary Knew that she had to help release Hannah from her prision of fear, loneliness, and rage. But how to do it? How could Mary help a child who had been shut up in closets, locked out of her home, beaten by both her brother and father? How could she reach Hannah?" This excerpt is from inside the dust jacket. This book tells how Mary was able to reach and help Hannah.
