The main, terrible thing we have learned is that there is no way of predicting which adolescents will have the worst time with the ghastly peer and cultural pressures which are on them. What a dreadful time you all (and many others) went through-I hope your book can comfort them. T. Berry Brazelton, M.D."Melanie Bellah seems to have crafted a literary genre that is uniquely her own; her books churn up feelings [that] speak more to my unconscious than to my conscious mind. How else can I explain the lingering hold that her two books have on me?" Huston Smith, author of The World'¬?s Religions
"Melanie Bellah lyrically chronicles the life and death of her teenage daughter, Abby. And by blending the girl¬?s diary entries into the story, Bellah brings alive the heart-rendering story of her daughter'¬?s fatal car crash and teaches teens how fragile life is." Boston Herald
