This deeply moving memoir tells the story of Hannah: a child who has been beaten and abused; a girl full of loneliness and rage; a student no one but learning disabilities teacher Mary MacCracken could reach. Mary had reservations about eight-year-old Hannah joining her class. The three emotionally disturbed boys she was currently looking after had been making steady progress, and Hannah, who had a reputation for being a withdrawn and incredibly troubled child, would only be a disruptive influence. For the first fortnight Hannah retired to a cupboard and refused to come out. Howling almost non-stop she was displaying the worst symptoms that Mary had ever seen. How could Mary help a child who had been shut up in closets and treated like an animal? What could she say to a child who had been locked out of her own home, and beaten by both her brother and her father? How could she reach this lost girl? This is the remarkable story of Hannah and Mary ́s journey together. Deep within Hannah, Mary recognises an amazing strength. And with love, skill and patience, she gradually starts to make a difference. It ́s a long road to recovery, but Mary never gives up. As this moving true story unfolds, we feel Mary ́s joy, we share her hope and, in time, her faith that Hannah will be okay.… (mais)

This was a wonderful book, made even more wonderful by the fact that it's a true story. It follows a special education teacher who helps Hannah, a wild supposedly non-verbal girl who is prone to hiding in closets, rocking, and hitting her head on the floor. Through Mary's persistent attention and devotion Hannah flourishes, comes into her own and begins learning not only school-type stuff like reading, but the very important social skills that she had been lacking.

This book was given to me in high school when I was shadowing a special education teacher. I was hooked from the beginning and have read more of Mary MacCracken's books. It is frightening to know children are so mistreated but heart warming to know there are special educators in the world who can draw them out of their darkness and rejoice in blue dessert! ( )

Mary MacCracken writes of an 8 year old girl who has been locked in closets instead of dealing with her animal like characteristics. A special needs child who is brought into a private school finds hope through a non-certified teacher. Through countless hours of tough love, patience and caring the world begins to change for this little girl.
My absolute favorite book ever, I read this book at least 6 times, loaned it to a friend and never got it back. I hope she is enjoying it as many times as I did.
I feel this book is a bit out of context with the advances in the care of special needs children, but as a teacher it is a great inspiration to read. It helps ground you, and makes you remember the importance a teacher can hold on a childs life just by caring and not giving up on the hard cases.
