Excellent book! My heart broke at times for Maggie. The fact that a person, a child , can endure the things she did & overcome them , was empowering to me! I love stories ( true or fiction ) that she a person or people triumphing over the unimaginable. What a wonderful way to spread hope, courage , & awareness of abuse. Amazing author, Mable J. Miller! I would & have recommended this book to many!
