This book looks at what happens when your child commits a crime. What happens when the child you love with all your heart and soul is branded a pedophile? As a Mother you still love this person. You will still see the good in them. You still want the best for them. You hurt when they are hurting. When others harm your child seeking retribution, how does this affect you, your family, your relationships, and you children?


Noah is an honor roll student and star on the swim team. He is the ultimate all-American boy with a bright future, until the day he confesses to molesting two girls during swim practice. He is arrested and sentenced to eighteen months in a juvenile sexual rehabilitation center. His Mother remains supportive and visits him on a regular basis. His father is disgusted and will not allow Noah to move back into their home after his release. Noah struggles throughout. He is targeted and beaten, has low self-esteem and views himself as a monster. His Mother refuses to give up but as time goes by she is faced with some challenging questions – how will she protect her son? how will she hold her family together? How does she help her young daughter who is struggling? What does the future hold for her son?

This book takes a unique look at the life of a pedophile and what happens to a teenage offender and his family especially his Mother. I found this book to be thought provoking, sad, and has a twist involved. I found the story to be engaging and felt for all the characters. No one wins in these types of situations. This is a very interesting book about a sensitive subject which may be hard for some to read. I found this book hard to put down and had to keep reading until the last page. I’m not sure how I feel about the epilogue but overall, I enjoyed this book; although it feels strange to say so due to the subject matter.

I received a copy of this book from the Author in exchange for an honest review.
