"Shame" is the impact that childhood trauma has on an individual and how one young girl found the strength to keep moving forward in life even though the curve balls kept hitting her head on she was able to hide behind her smile.
How will a young girl overcome a predator's secret? Who is hiding among the shadows of those who love this child? Even the innocence of a child's well-being can be stolen from those most trusted. This book is based on real events and how abuse can occur right before our eyes, but it is the wits of those we trust most who take away a child's youth, a child's dreams, and a child's ability to find happiness in a world of reoccurring nightmares. How will Stella find her voice to speak the truth, or will she continue to live in the depths of her predator?
