Description - One Child by Torey Hayden
Six-year-old Sheila never spoke, she never cried, and her eyes were filled with hate. Abandoned on a highway by her mother, abused by her alcoholic father, Sheila was placed in a class for the hopelessly retarded after she committed an atrocious act of violence against another child.Everyone said Sheila was lost forever -- everyone except teacher Torey Hayden.Torey fought to reach Sheila, to bring the abused child back from her secret nightmare, because beneath the autistic rage, Torey saw in Sheila the spark of genius. And together they embarked on a wondrous journey -- a journey gleaming with a child's joy at discovering a world filled with love and a journey sustained by a young teacher's inspiring bravery and devotion.
