 About the Book 

Emma Snow seems like an ordinary child. Perhaps a little quiet, with a hearing impairment…she’s a straight-A student who loves to read. Emma lives with her two sisters, her father, and her stepmother in a house on Third Street. A house the neighborsMoreEmma Snow seems like an ordinary child. Perhaps a little quiet, with a hearing impairment…she’s a straight-A student who loves to read. Emma lives with her two sisters, her father, and her stepmother in a house on Third Street. A house the neighbors avoid discussing.Within the walls of the Snow residence, Emma and her sisters are the target of a never-ending stream of military-style beatings, sexual assault, and rape—all at the hands of their unpredictably violent father.For ten years, Emma and her sisters suffer—with one short, blissful stay in a foster home showing them what life could be like. Emma lives on constant high alert, always waiting for her father’s next explosion. All she wants is to live the life other little girls take for granted: To laugh. To be safe. To be a kid.When a crisis center counselor intervenes, it seems Emma and her sisters will finally be free of their tormenter. Surely the judge won’t let Emma’s father go free? But things don’t always play out as they should, even when a child predator confesses his crimes.
