    DNF spoiler alert for the first half of the book This is the second book that I ve read by Torey Hayden, and I think it will be the last.It s well written and easy to read, as far as the writing style goes, but that s the only good thing I have to say.As for the story itself, I don t believe a word of it.Jadie, the central character in this story, suffers from selective mutism, but only at school For years, teachers and the school psychologist have been trying to get her to speak, with no success Torey Hayden, the new teacher at the school, and in charge of the small class of special needs children, has her speaking before the end of her first day Really Reuben, a nine year old boy suffering from autism, went to use the toilet Some little time later Reuben was heard crying, and when the toilet door was unlocked Jadie was sitting on the toilet, her dress hiked up around her waist and her underpants around her ankles Reuben, standing in front of her, his overalls down, was howling pathetically as Jadie clutched his penis Jadie ran off, and when Rueuben finally removed his own hand from his penis, it was red and swollen, with human teeth marks.SooooTorey explained and apologized to Rueben s nanny, who d come to pick him up after school Turning a whimpering Reuben over to his nanny, I explained briefly what had happened and apologized profusely His parents could phone me, I said, if they wished to discuss the matter further, and I gave my home telephone number She didn t see the need to speak to the parents herself And the parents didn t contact her, or the Headmaster Their autistic son is upset, with bite marks on his penis, and they say nothing There is another incident involving Jadie, Jeremiah and a male puppy, which I won t relate here Suffice it to say that I m extremely broad minded and nothing much shocks me But this did I was also dumbfounded Torey spoke briefly with Jadie about the incident, and then related what happened to the school psychologist They suspect sexual abuse but decided they needed concrete evidence, so they did nothing Again, really Two similar incidents, one involving a male puppy, where Jadie is overheard telling Jeremiah that she knows how to suck milk out of a penis, and the school psychologist doesn t even speak with Jadie Jeremiah, an eight year old boy of Sioux heritage, is quite a handful He s often aggressive and constantly uses foul language, including the f word, not only at the other students, but also the teaching staff No attempt is ever made to correct this In fact, no one even blinks an eye, even when he s trying to teach Rueben to say f.Jeremiah doesn t have learning disabilities His pugnacious behavior was so extreme, his mouth so foul that the parents in his previous school had banded together to keep him from returning, even with resource help So he d ended up here in a last ditch attempt to save him from custodial detention So they place him in a special needs class where he s allowed to swear and behave a badly as he likes At about half way, Jeremiah used the word nigger Phillip, a black boy in the class, who was born drug addicted and is in foster care, comes to school with a Christmas snow globe that his birth mother sent him Jeremiah states that his is better because it came from Disneyland and not no nigger dimestore And that, folks, was the end for me

    I finished this book in exactly one week Ghost girl isa compelling book, to say the least The fact that it tells a true story is one of the reasons why its reader is urged to keep on going, but the most important reason is that you can t help but wanting to find out what happened to Jadie.The book is about her, an 8 year old girl who s deeply disturbed and is an elective mute That means she doesn t talk by choice She never laughs, never cries or expresses any other kind of emotion She just is Walking doubled over as if she s crippled, she just seems to not care about life or anything around her at all The author of this book, Torey Hayden, is a special education teacher who has helped children her whole life and has got quite the career record to testify to that The book deals with Torey coming to Jadie s class to teach and slowly trying to get through to her, wanting to find the source of her problems It s obvious from the start thanks to the cover text that something horrible and terrifying must have happened to Jadie or is perhaps still happening for her to be so psychologically damaged And as you get on, you start collecting pieces to the puzzle, though it s all very confusing at first and you share the teacher s frustration.I won t give away anything , since it s really just a book that needs to be read to fully understand its power For lack of a better word, it leaves you shocked When I put the book down I felt like crying Crying for Jadie and the millions of other children out there who have gone or are going through similar situations If only there were caring and loving teachers like in this book, then maybe the world would be a better place Maybe.

    This book freaked me out You know in that praying you can forget it long enough to fall asleep kind of way Seriously if Hayden handed the manuscript to Stephen King and asked him to make it disturbing, there wouldn t be a clown wig wearing, pig blood showering thing he could do about it.The craziest part is it isn t a horror book Well, I guess it sort of is It s a horror book slash murder mystery with the undertones of a thriller that s driven by the special interest story of a child psychologist teaching elementary school The only thing that could make it crazier would be if I told you it s a true story.Also it s a true story.The plot follows psychologist Torey Hayden the author as she unravels damage done to 7 year old Jadie, then fights to rescue her from the worst nightmare you can imagine Best case scenario she s being sexually abused Worst case scenario she s being sexually abused by the members of a Satanic cult probably her parents , has been forced to ritualistically slaughter animals to drink their blood, and also witnessed the brutal murder of a young girl.This is the first book I ve read in one sitting in YEARS Mostly because I m an adult and a parent so disappearing for 16 hours is generally frowned upon Besides, I can usually tear myself away with a reminder of my responsibilities Or if that fails chocolate But I could hardly leave this book to PEE At first, it was the other worldly prose that grabbed me Hayden would be a gifted writer even if she WASN T a gifted psychologist Then I was glued to the book by my concern for Jadie and a desperate need for her to find safety By about halfway through, I was just SO FREAKED OUT that I thought if I looked away I might find myself face to face with Freddy Krueger, Bloody Mary, or their even terrifying illegitimate love child I figured if I made it to the end, my mind could rest easy in a nice resolution.BE WARNED NOW THERE IS NO RESOLUTION They never find out exactly what happened to the poor kid So now I just walk through my life terrified that my babies will be kidnapped and sexually assaulted by a Satanic cult SIDE NOTE The colorful, profanity ridden comments of 8 year old Jeremiah are possibly the funniest things I ve ever read in my life The entire read is worth it, just for him Jadie will haunt me until my last breath Stories like this simply should not be true EVER Especially for children Reading this book has completely disillusioned me on the inherent goodness of human beings Now I m terrified the guy in line at the grocery store behind me is a child abusing Satanist who wants to drink my blood I m putting myself on a strict recovery regimen of picture books and Disney movies.And chocolate.FAVORITE QUOTES What was going through my mind as I studied her was that she would have made an archetypal country western singer She had about her that powerful aura of hardbitten wisdom, the kind evidenced by women named Lurleen or Loretta Help me, she was saying, almost sighing Help me, help me, help me Coming nearer and nearer until all that was visible on the screen was a mouth forming the same words over and over again Help me, help me, help me Then the monitor went blank Jadie Sometimes what comes out is anger, because it s frustrating, because something s got to come out, and because feeling angry isn t as scary as feeling afraid Torey Like I said, we aren t little girls We re ghosts I don t mind when it goes dark Gotta be dark to be a ghost But if it goes too dark before you get out, you can t do it You can t get out of your body and you get shut in Jadie I ve probably lived a pretty sheltered life But I can t say I m not thankful for that It s easier to believe in the good in people if you don t know all the bad Lucy They say hurting s good You get stronger, when you hurt They make you strong, so you can kill people If you don t like someone, they teach you how to make that person die Jadie Because she s disturbed Because I don t want to see a replay of the Salem witch hunt right here on my own turf That s what that was, wasn t it Hysterical children accusing innocent adults These are PEOPLE, Torey This is a FAMILY we re talking about here, and they re never going to be the same because of this You and I and the police and everyone, we ll walk out of it The Ekdahls won t I m scared shitless by this talk of witches and Satan and stuff, not because of what it is, but because of what it can do I m so frightened we re going to forget these are people and we re destroying them Arkie Certainly, I realize a clear cut climax and resolution would make it a much better book Unfortunately, it would also make it fiction Hayden explaining her lack of resolution in the epilogue

    This was fairly pulp type reading, I got through the book very quickly The author is a special needs teacher has written a whole series of books about the poor children she s worked with but who s stories she doesn t mind using for profitthere s no real educational or informative angle on these things It didn t sit right with me that this is apparently a real case, but obviously changed to protect the innocent to the point where she could have probably made up anything I also don t like the fact how the blurb makes her out to be some sort of super teacherits like she s using these cases to stoke the fire of her ego, when its not even clear how much has been altered But, having said that, it was an interesting read the case is very sad She s not a bad writer, unlike the blurb doesn t seem to really sing her own praises too much in the story even though some of the techniques she apparently used to get the girl to talk are quite interesting I also liked that the conclusion wasn t a happily ever after cop out I don t think I ll read any of her books though, the whole Dave Pelzer thing turned me off stories of this type as they re never nearly introspective enough, they just come across as sensationalist to me.

    Torey Hayden has written this book inspired by her experiences as a teacher helping students with a wide range of emotional disturbances This book follows her as she worked with Jade, a young girl with elective mutism When she and Jade finally get down to business and she helps Jade put a voice to her fears, she discovers that the child is apparently being abused by a cult of Satan worshipping child molesters.I say apparently because it s clear that ultimately this is all speculation While it seems plausible enough that Jade and her sisters have been sexually assaulted her father is arrested some years after Jade is taken from his custody for molesting a child her age , the rest is not really proven.The book is sensational and well written, but inconclusive There is never any proof that Jade s claims are true and as this all took place in the 80 s when there was an hysteria surrounding children being abused by devil worshippers, that leads my inner skeptic to think, Weeeeeeeeeell, maybe not so much On the other hand, I must be honest and say that I just don t know I definitely don t want it to be true if it is, the poor children endured absolute hell And that makes you pause and wonder what kind of world we live in.

    This is the true story of an experienced special ed teacher who goes to a small town to teach a class One girl in her class in very disturbed and this book tries to unravel why the girl is disturbed Once I got into the book I couldn t put it down But now that I am finished..creepy I don t think I will sleep well tonight This book will probably give me nightmares and I sort of regret reading it I googled and the girl is now grown up, but declined to be interviewed.I have my opinion about what maybe happened to the girl, but I don t want to say because it will give away spoilers.

    This book is gripping and heartwrenching It is a story that I just had to finish once I started, and I read the entire book in one sitting But once I finished the book, I almost wished I hadn t read it There are some very grapic and disturbing images in this book It made me feel bad to even let my mind wander to these kinds of places The very sad thing about this book is that it is a true story And whether you believe Jadie truly experienced these things or not, I really do believe she experienced what she said she did at least to some extent No little child could simply make up the kinds of things Jadie recalls That is why at the end of the book, while the author makes no concrete statement as to whether Jadie s experiences were 100% true, I believe they did happen to her Maybe every detail was not recalled entirely accurately, but there is a lot of evil in this worldand I don t take that for granted I also think that if a child acted the way Jadie did in this day and age, a lot people would suspect abuse It seemed like all her teachers and even the psychologist simply believe Jadie was just a messed up kid How sad Proceed with caution with this book, it is extremely disturbing to those who are sensitive to such matters and especially if you are a spiritual person.
