Kelly Paddik is locked up. Sent to a secure facility because she is a "danger to herself," Kelly wants only to escape. But her painful past continues to haunt her until she is forced to face up to the most painful memory of all. A searing look at one girl's struggle for self respect.

Editorial Review

"Even the most resistant of teen readers will be thoroughly absorbed by 15-year-old Kelly and her situation...Goobie's characterization of Kelly and her powerhouse of rolling impulses and emotions is keenly convincing."
