I’m seven years old, and he has just done something bad. He has left me, and I stare at the stained sheets, too stunned to speak.

I’m nine years old, and I no longer wear pigtails because he loves innocence. It doesn’t stop him.

I’m twelve, and I scream for help. Make so much noise that the neighbors are bound to hear. He holds me down and teaches me not to scream.

Eden Wright’s parents have both verbally and physically abused her for years. Her best friend, Lacey, is facing problems of her own. When Lacey’s boyfriend commits a horrible act, it is all too familiar to something Eden has suffered herself. Desperate to escape the memories that have been haunting her, she has to face the frightening truth that she has spent her whole life trying to forget.

Broken Girls is a powerful, promising novel from this new author. Check it out now on Amazon.
