Ask Dr. Marta Weekly – April 16

  
TITLE: NOT IN ROOM 204

AUTHOR: SHANNON RIGGS

ILLUSTRATOR: JAIME ZOLLARS

Regina’s got trouble at home that’s so scary and so private she doesn’t know where to turn. Open this book to learn how kids can find their voice and save their lives!

WHY I LIKE THIS BOOK: The world can be a very frightening place for kids when grownups cross the line when it comes to respecting a child’s privacy. Shannon Riggs tells a story with sensitivity and realism that captures your heart and provides a way out for children who are trapped in sexually abusive situations. Jaime Zollars’ illustrations express the pain and fear of a young girl caught in this situation and the determination of a courageous teacher who comes to her rescue. Plant this book on your shelf as a tool to help those who feel helpless find their voice and the door to the safe and joy-filled life they deserve.
