~2018-2019 Reader Views Literary Awards Honorable Mention Award~

A child’s life should be idyllic: filled with friends, abundant joy, and carefree days of endless possibility. But that was not to be for Jake Malloy and his little sister, Dory. Their lives traversed paths upon which no child should tread.

As a young adult trying to overcome the past, Jake chronicles the events that destroyed the possibilities and turned life for the Malloys into a living hell. Will Jake and Dory ever be able to lead normal lives? Only time will tell.

A fictional memoir not for the faint of heart.

Smart, edgy and haunting. Some of the shocking twists may take your breath away, but you won’t be able to stop reading.
Author Paul Margolis
Realistic and genuine, the writing rocked my very core as my whole body tensed with emotion …. The ending is dramatic and haunting. … I highly recommend.

This is an emotionally charged novel that needs to be read. Haunting and painfully relevant, this novel is a horror story that challenges the concept of monsters …. If you haven’t yet, be sure to grab your copy … today!
Author Anthony Avina
I think Ross told the story well … with dialect and speaking style included. … it’s a compelling read that tells the horrors of a family that stayed with a man because there were no other options. Very well done.
