Ghost Girl: The True Story of a Child in Desperate Peril-and a Teacher Who Saved Her
By Torey Hayden
From the bestselling author of One Child comes this compelling, true story of a child in desperate peril and the teacher who saved her despite the odds.
Jadie never spoke. She never laughed, or cried, or uttered any sound. Despite efforts to reach her, Jadie remained locked in her own troubled world…until one remarkable teacher persuaded her to break her self-imposed silence.
Nothing in all of Torey Hayden's experience could have prepared her for the shock of what Jadie told her—a story too horrendous for Torey's professional colleagues to acknowledge. Yet a little girl was living in a nightmare, and Torey Hayden responded in the only way she knew how—with courage, compassion, and dedication—demonstrating once again the tremendous power of love and the resilience of the human spirit.
