All I can say is that I never thought it would come to this. I never thought I would run away. For some reason I thought you, of all people, would see and know. Sheree has always been a tough girl, able to take care of herself. Then she finds herself in a situation where she can't. She needs help. She needs answers. But she can't get either from the people she she turns to -- her parents, her friends, and especially, her boyfriend, who calls her Baby Girl and treats her like she's disposable. So who can Sheree turn to? Maybe the answer lies deep within herself, and it's truly time for her to grow up. In a voice that rings strong ant true, debut novelist Lenora Adams tells a story that is rich, complex, and achingly real.
