The Word Game by Steena Holmes is the first book I have read by this author but won't be the last! A story that takes us into a family dealing with young girls and sexual abuse.
An over-protective mother, Alyson, finally agrees to let her daughter,Lyla, attend a sleep over with her cousin and friends. After which she ask Lyla how she liked it, thus opening a whole new set of questions. Is it her (Alyson) over-protective mind at work or is something seriously wrong? Who should she talk to about it? What should she do? What would you do?
This book tore at my heart!
I received an ARC (advanced reader's copy) from Net Gallery in exchange for my honest review.
