The Word Game by Steena Holmes


I thought this book did a beautiful job of a tough subject.  When allegations are made at a sleep over the adults and the girls are left to wonder if it is simply someone stretching the truth, telling a story or if it is really something going on and Lila’s mother knows all to well what happens when things like this get swept under the rug.  Despite mounting pressure to back off Alyson keeps asking questions and sets off a chain of events that will change lives and force Alyson and her family to face the past.  The potentially explosive topic of abuse is handled with delicacy, compassion and honesty that make for a beautiful and hopeful story.
