No Shadows Left Behind by Tina-Sue Ducross
There is no escape from the shadows of the past. At least, not for Melissa…
Terrorizing dreams, panic attacks and everyday interactions bring back the past she thought was dead and gone.
Eight-grade teacher Melissa Bates suspects that one of her students, Christy Kade, is coping with an all-too familiar struggle. Christy's father plays "secret, special games" with her. She lives in fear and isolation daily. When she gains a desperately needed friendship, she begins to search for the courage to reach out for help.
Throughout the school year, Christy and Melissa face challenges both mundane and monumental. Through it all, they live their lives, haunted by their shadows. Despite their fears, they make attempts at trust with unexpected results. As our heroines open themselves up, they grow in ways they never thought possible.
Ugly things do happen behind closed doors but help and hope do exist. Broken lives can be mended, joy can be found.
