Harboring a dark secret, twelve-year-old Jillian Maxwell is afraid to tell anyone, thinking she will be blamed, and soon becomes a sullen student with failing grades, and must draw on her inner strength for the power to save herself and her family.

HARPERCOLL

Kimberla Lawson Roby explores the consequences of a life-altering family trauma in A Deep Dark Secret, tackling controversy with the same storytelling brio and startling insight into human nature that made her previous books New York Times bestsellers. Leaving behind the world of philandering preacher Curtis Black and his family—featured in her acclaimed novels Too Much of a Good Thing, Love and Lies, Sin No More, and The Best of Everything—Roby enters the life of a little girl hiding A Deep Dark Secret and gets to the troubling root of an all too prevalent societal and family issue. Both groundbreaking and ultimately hopeful, this coming-of-age story is powerful, brave, and unforgettable.

This book kept it real about sexual abuse, how experiences differ and how, when it is most important, one mother believed her daughter and one did not and the effects of that decision on the girls. To me, it didn't matter that the characters were African-American, as absolutely no one should suffer from this abuse.
