Creative writing mentor Sonja K. Solter discusses her profound debut middle grade work, When You Know What I Know. (Ages 8+)

A sensitive, harrowing, and ultimately hopeful novel in verse about one girl's journey in the aftermath of abuse.
One day after school, on the couch in the basement, Tori's uncle did something bad. Afterward, Tori tells her mom. Even though telling was a brave thing to do, her mom still doesn't believe her at first. Her grandma still takes his side. And Tori doesn't want anyone else -- even her best friend -- to know what happened.
Now Tori finds herself battling mixed emotions -- anger, shame, and sadness -- as she deals with the trauma. But with the help of her mom, her little sister, her best friend, and others, can Tori find a way to have the last word?

From debut author Sonja K. Solter comes a heartbreaking yet powerful novel that will strike a chord with readers of Jacqueline Woodson and Tony Abbott.
