A powerful and moving book exposing one of Canada's most traumatic crimes--child sexual abuse.
Award-winning journalist Judy Steed confronts the painful and controversial subject of child sexual abuse. Verified incidents of sexual assaults against children increase every year, yet the issue remains largely a hidden problem. Reporting from the frontlines, in an accessible, anecdotal style, Judy Steed brings all aspects of this complex subject to light.
Our Little Secret is a book for parents, alerting them to the dangers posed by child abusers; for professionals, offering insight into how the most experienced police detectives, doctors, teachers, Crown attorneys, social workers and lawyers across the county deal with the issues and problems surrounding child sexual abuse; and for victims themselves, whose voices come through loud and clear, sharing their experiences and hard-earned wisdom on how they have managed to survive.
Their stories are instructive, unforgettable--and imperative reading for anyone who cars about children.
