From the bestselling author of One Child comes The Invisible Girl, a deeply moving true account of a young teen with a troubling obsession and an extraordinary educational psychologist's sympathy and determination.
Eloise is a vibrant and charming young teen with a deeply caring nature, but she also struggles with a troubling obsession. She’s been moved from home to home, and her social workers have difficulty dealing with her habit of running away. After experiencing violence, neglect, and sexual abuse from people she should have been able to trust, Eloise has developed complex behavioral needs. She struggles to separate fact from fiction, leading to confusion for the social workers trying to help her. After Torey learns of Eloise's background she hopes that some gentle care and attention can help Eloise gain some sense of security in her life.
Can Torey and the other social workers provide the loving attention that has so far been missing in Eloise's life, or will she run away from them too?
