Publisher's Summary

At eight years old, Tuesday Storm's childhood is forever lost when the death of her older sister Audrey sends her family spiraling out of control into the darkest of dysfunction. In the wake of the tragedy, Tuesday's mother, distraught and looking for a scapegoat, singles Tuesday out from her siblings to take on the blame for Audrey's death, and then targets her for unspeakable abuse. Almost overnight, the loving environment Tuesday has come to know, becomes an endless nightmare of twisted "games" and sadistic punishments as she's forced to confront the cruelty lurking behind the beautiful face of the mother she idolizes.

Based on a true story, Call Me Tuesday recounts with raw emotion a young girl's physical and mental torment at the mercy of the monster in her mother's clothes - a monster she doesn't know how to stop loving. Tuesday's painful journey through the hidden horrors of child abuse will open your eyes to what could be going on behind your neighbor's door, while her unshakeable love for her parents will tug at your heartstrings.

    Story
    "Where's the confrontation?"

    Narration was great. The book was brutally honest and exposed the raw nature of child abuse and secrecy. It triggered a number of emotional responses, to put it mildly. I can appreciate the author's individual methods of coping, but her lack of confrontation left me feeling extremely frustrated.

    "A disturbing tale"

    A disturbing reminder of my life as a little girl. This book brought up so many confused emotions that I thoroughly enjoyed it. I am so grateful to the author for telling her story and sad that she endured the abuse.

    "Amazing"

    Great book. It was painful to hear. As a mother it was hard to listen to this little girl hurt and not be able to help.

    "Harsh realities"
    Any additional comments?

    Call Me Tuesday is based on the author's life. Ms. Ryan did an excellent job narrating this story making it possible to feel Tuesday's pain. Even though the circumstances of Tuesday's life are so horrid at times, she is strong, she is a survivor. Having already listened to this book twice, it is one that I will listen to many times over as each time my admiration for Tuesday grows, realizing just how much she has had to overcome.

    Story
    "last word word hit me like a Thunderbold..."

    beautifully written, and narrated... brought everything into perspective, opened a clear window in to my foggy memories, reading this story was like a blueprint, and a guidance for all children who have suffered from their lovedones... chapeau
