Publisher's Summary

Brooke Nolan is a battered child who makes an anonymous phone call about the escalating brutality in her home.

When social services jeopardize her safety, condemning her to keep her father's secret, it's a glass of spilled milk at the dinner table that forces her to speak about the cruelty she's been hiding. In her pursuit of safety and justice, Brooke battles a broken system that pushes to keep her father in the home.

When jury members and a love interest congregate to inspire her to fight, she risks losing the support of family and comes to the realization that some people simply do not want to be saved.

Spilled Milk is a novel of shocking narrative, triumph, and resiliency.

What the Critics Say

"Randis later would testify at a criminal trial against her father, who was sentenced to prison for his crimes. He was sentenced to up to 16 years in 2004. Her painful - and ultimately triumphant - story is recounted in Randis' first novel, Spilled Milk." (Stacy Brown, interview with the Pocono Record)

"Spilled Milk is a story about resilience. The strength of the human mind and will power to live a better life." (The Weekly Sparkle)

"Beautifully written, hauntingly real, Spilled Milk is a must read for any young adult today." (F. P. Lione)

    Story
    "Wow!"

    I'm so glad I bought more credits to purchase this book as soon as it was released. The story is heartbreaking, captivating, and brave. The narration is excellent. I hope this book helps people to understand why victims remain silent for so long and how much courage it takes to speak out. Being victimized is far more complex than just being hurt and calling the police to "fix" it.

    "Awful story... great retelling"

    I don't know what made me choose to listen to this book, maybe the sweet girl on the cover? Maybe the story? Idk. My heart goes out to 'brooke' and her family and she did an amazing job of capturing her life.

    "Thank you Brooke"

    What an awesome book for everyone who works with children in the system for any reason. This book will give you insight from so many aspects that you may not have ever heard. Thank you to the author for being so brave and for sharing such intimate details to help those of us who are trying to help others. Our goals need to be preventing these children from growing up to become Earl's and only repeating what they know is the norm.

    "Inspiring"

    Sad topic but an inspiring story narrated by the person who lived through it. Very well written. Only minor criticism was the author's narration made difficult to distinguish who was saying what. Minor quibble though, still a great listen.
