"I'm sorry daddy", I scream as his fist knocks me flying against the wall.
Pain explodes and I lie there, everything throbbing, tasting blood in my mouth.
It's my fault Daddy hits me. I'm useless and bad. I try to be good but I'm never good enough.

Eleven year old Leah is hiding a secret. A deep, dark scary secret that no-one knows. She goes to school and dreads coming home again, not knowing what will happen. Can Leah tell someone before it's too late?

Why do you write about this? It's good, but I just don't get it. Why would you want to write it?
