Publisher's summary

A shocking story about a 15-year-old girl and the man who took advantage of her.

"You might as well know from the start, I'm not going to tell on him, and I don't care how much trouble I get in. It's not like it could get any worse than it already is. I can't. Don't ask me why, I just can't."

When Nina finds out that her 15-year-old daughter, Scarlett, is pregnant, her world falls apart.

Because Scarlet won't tell anyone who the father is. And Nina is scared that the answer will destroy everything.

As the suspects mount - from Scarlett's teacher to Nina's new husband of less than a year - Nina searches for the truth...no matter what the cost.

Good story Good Narrator

This was a bitter sweet innocence lost story. I found myself empathizing with each of the main characters and in turn wanting to slap each of them.

The narration was good and added to the overall enjoyment.

The story switches back and forth in time into before and after. This wasn't necessary and detracted a little from the story revealing itself in a natural way.

Definitely worth a listen.
