Safe. To Tracy, safe means having Mama close by. Years after her mother?s death, Tracy still feels her presence. But the moment Tracy is forced into a car as she is walking home from school one day, safe is ripped away. In the aftermath of an unspeakable crime, thirteen-year-old Tracy must fight her way back to safety and find comfort in her mother?s memory once again. Susan Shaw returns with a raw and moving story of a young rape victim?s journey toward healing, empowered by poetry and music, family and friends.
