This shocking and thought provoking account is the true story of emotionally lost children and how some found their way back. Like a diamond in the rough, all of the kids who killed were tough and protected on the outside while hiding a glimmer of promise inside. For many of these children, the Thomas’s were their last hope. With the guidance of this courageous family, their stories of survival and victory break the unwritten code of silence about children without a conscience. Through therapeutic intervention comes the spellbinding metamorphosis of nine children. Although it stems from the deepest of human suffering, each shining triumph will leave you uplifted and celebrating life.

After reading what some of you postedmakes me sick. I have read the book and I know the auther very well. I knew what happened in this house first hand and it';s not what some of these books claim it was like. Remamber all the things in the news about YBP (youth behavior program) ACE (attachment center at evergreen) and with Connel Watkins who now lives in Nancy's home where she works with kids. Connel killed a kid and had so many abuse claims aginst her, and that was Nancy's so called teacher? This book is full of lies and make belive stories. I know 2 of the so called problem kids in this book and the story of them is so far from accurate. Don't buy it it not worth supproting the crazzy thins the auther thinks and belives. She also thinks that what Connel Watkins did was alright.
