Suzy Has a Secret

by Carolina Leuthner (Author), Nichols H Deborah (Author), Nef Melendez (Illustrator)

The book is written in a way that is easy and comfortable for a child to read with an adult without getting too explicit over a horrible circumstance, but expose enough of it for the child to relate. The texture and complexity of this story helps educate children about sexual abuse by presenting an uncomfortable subject in a familiar format. Smaller paragraphs and abundant images make the book approachable for children of all ages. Suzy's story takes young readers on a journey from hopelessness and despair to understanding and overcoming the grips of a deeply inflicted physical and emotional scar. In the midst of turmoil, Suzy follows her instincts and learns how to trust again. She finds the courage to expose the situation and eventually discovers a path to healing.
