Kurzbeschreibung

6. März 2006
A stunning and poignant account of an extraordinary teacher's determination from the author of the #1 Sunday Times bestsellers The Tiger's Child and One Child. Jadie never spoke, never laughed, never cried. She spent every waking hour locked in her own private world of shadows. But nothing in Torey Hayden's experience had prepared her for the nightmare Jadie revealed to her when finally persuaded to break her self-imposed silence. It was a story too painful, too horrific for Hayden's professional colleagues to acknowledge. But Torey Hayden could not close her ears! or her heart. A little girl was trapped in a living hell of unspeakable memories. And it would take every ounce of courage, compassion, and love that one remarkable teacher possessed to rid the "Ghost Girl" of the malevolent spirits that haunted her.

Synopsis

This is a stunning and poignant account of an extraordinary teacher's determination from the author of the No. 1 "Sunday Times" bestsellers "The Tiger's Child" and "One Child". Jadie never spoke, never laughed, never cried. She spent every waking hour locked in her own private world of shadows. But nothing in Torey Hayden's experience had prepared her for the nightmare Jadie revealed to her when finally persuaded to break her self-imposed silence. It was a story too painful, too horrific for Hayden's professional colleagues to acknowledge. But Torey Hayden could not close her ears or her heart. A little girl was trapped in a living hell of unspeakable memories. And it would take every ounce of courage, compassion, and love that one remarkable teacher possessed to rid the "Ghost Girl" of the malevolent spirits that haunted her.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Chasing & Fighting Shadows 5. August 2005
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
This is an outstanding book about working with children. This book is mainly about Jadie, who, at 8 is (s)electively mute, walks hunched over and expresses fears that initially seem bizarre.
Readers are introduced to Jadie and her classmates after the school year's half term break. Within a short space of time during that first day, Jadie broke her self imposed silence and spoke softly when asked a direct question. From that point on, Jadie's verbal progress is remarkable. A bright, expressive child, Jadie described a bizarre life outside of the classroom that certainly makes for a strong case for ritual abuse. Luckily Jadie was provided with a classroom environment in which she felt safe.
Jadie feared spiders because she believed they could hear her and "tell on her" if she divulged anything that could be construed as a breach of confidence. She explained her posture as a means of "keeping her insides from falling out;" she fears the number 6 and worries about her younger sister surviving her sixth birthday; she said adults she knew told her how at six one gains power and how people can hurt others with impunity; she describes drinking blood as "oily" and "slipping down." Ghosts and themes of death are trenchant; many of Jadie's early drawings are of ghosts and she said that she and her little sisters were ghosts at night. She also believed that a playmate who had allegedly died had become a ghost and that that child's ghost had gotten into her, Jadie.
Each fear she expressed can be traced to ritual abuse. In many cases, ritual abusers claim that spiders as well as insects spy on children and report anything the children might tell. Imbibing blood and other body fluids is often a cult activity and the number 6 has a long history of having dark magical properties attributed to it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great Story/Novel 16. März 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
Ghost girl by Torey Hayden shows how one person can change another person's life....forever. This is probably one of the most successful stories in showing a teacher's love and courage, Jadie would still be home getting abused. In this story Jadie is crying out to the world by being an "elective mute." While others ran away or gave up, this teacher, torey, got Jadie talking and communicating with her and opened her up to telling her the sick and horrifying life she was living in. Jadie was living in a pure, Satanist nightmare and Torey did the only thing she knew how to get this girl help and get her out of this nightmare; she fully succeeded in doing that. So Jadie wouldn't be abused anymore, she was placed in a foster home far away, and before she left, she gave Torey a piece of paper. "In my hand I still had the small piece of paper Jadie had given to me. Carefully pulling it open I found two words. Thank-you."

5.0 von 5 Sternen A gripping, chilling account of a child in peril 6. September 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
This is my first time reading a book by Tori L. Hayden, and i'm impressed with her ability to captivate the reader and expose one to the realm of emotionally disturbed children. This heart-wrenching story about an elective mute, Jadie, who was abused and maybe even involved in satanic rituals is truly one that chills and haunts you even days after reading the book. It is difficult to believe that anything so horrendous and unspeakable could happen to a child as innocent and young as Jadie. However, Tori's dedication and compassion is impressive and her ability to bring children back to the real world really strikes a keynote in each and every one of our hearts. However, I was stuck in the lurch with the ending, and I hope that an absolution or at least a better conclusion that could sum up the book could be included.

The story about Jadie- an eight year old girl who lives in a small town somewhere in mid Amerika.Torey arrives to this town after an impulse to change her job. In the school in which she is to work there's a small class which contains children in about the same agegroupe. They all suffer from some kind of mental disorder. One of the children is Jadie. She refuses to speak and acts very strange. Apparently she knows things not ment for an eight year old. Torey makes her talk and as their relationship grows the girl reveils bits of her world. Torey is thrown into a battle between siance and superstition. When Torey realises that the stories might not be just fiction she finally contacts the right authorities. A long investigation begins but even after this no real answear appears to the numerous questions.

I could't get Jadie out of my mind for weeks. Her accounts with Torey were so real, but yet so confusing. Could a seriously disturbed child come up with this? Lesen Sie weiter...
