Publisher's Summary

Tish Bonner’s high-school English class has to keep a dumb journal for their teacher, Mrs. Dunphrey. Doesn’t Mrs. Dunphrey know that kids are too busy coping with real life to be bothered with writing? But when 16-year-old Tish’s life is turned upside down, her journal becomes her only confidante.

Relying on her teacher’s promise that she won’t read any entry marked "don’t read this," Tish writes about her loneliness and fear when her mother abandons her and her little brother. Alone and with nowhere to turn, the teenager is forced to trust Mrs. Dunphrey with a final entry—one that she desperately wants her to read.

Popular new author Margaret Peterson Haddix addresses the fear, desperation, and loneliness of young abuse victims with warm insight and compassion. Alyssa Bresnahan’s flawless reading underscores a message which can’t be emphasized enough: "sometimes you need to ask for help."

Great story, bad audio quality

Quality of the audio was bad. Hiccups in the narrating. The story itself was pretty good and I really enjoyed it.

Recording was very poor quality.

The book was recorded very poorly. There were several parts where the audio get extremely distorted and choppy. In several sections, the audio skips and repeats words randomly. The story is great, but this recording wasn’t the best. If there is another source, I would try that one.
