“Debut author Lowell positively depicts how trained professionals can help families regain control of their lives, and she draws upon her own experiences living in a household of abuse. Though Lacey’s struggles are emotional, her journey toward independence is filled with hope.”
"Poignantly illustrates the trauma kids in abusive homes face when hide-and-seek is not just a game."
—Lisa Pipps, author of Starfish
