I am for peace: but when I speak, they are for war. Psalm 120:7 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, and prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

My name is Constance L. Aguero. The name of this book is, The Wounded Child, The girl the world forgot! this book consists of poetry that I have been writing since I was about eight years old. These poems express the feelings that this young survivor experienced at the hands of sexual, physical and emotional abuse. These poems talk about the abuse of my father, my uncle Walter, my uncle Raymond, my mother and her previous boyfriends, and my father's tricks that he brought home from the bar. I'm hoping that with me expressing my abuse through my poetry, that I can give a young or old person a chance at some hope. I decided that it was time for the world to know exactly what kind of people my abusers really were. I also figured this was my chance to tell my story, my way, without fearing what my abusers might think. This is my time to stand up and feel proud of the young woman I taught myself to be. My goals for writing this book are to let children know that it is not ok to be abused, that they should tell someone if they are. Also I want a chance to feel proud that I finally finished something that I set out to do. I believe that if people take time to trust their gut instincts that they will be able to find the appropriate treatment for their issues. If they do this, they will feel a huge change in how they feel about themselves.

From the legendary New York Times bestselling author of Flowers in the Attic and My Sweet Audrina (now Lifetime movies) comes the first book in the Casteel Family series—for fans of Emma Donoghue (Room) and Kay Hooper (Amanda). Of all the folks on the mountain, the Casteel children are the lowest. Even the families that buy them think so. Heaven Leigh Casteel may be the prettiest, smartest girl in the backwoods, but her cruel father and weary stepmother work her like a mule. For the sake of her brother Tom and the other little ones, Heaven clings to the hope that someday she can show the world that they are worthy of love and respect. But when the children’s stepmother can’t take it anymore and abandons the family, Heaven’s father hatches a scheme that will alter her young life forever. Being sold to a strange couple is just the beginning; ripping away the thin veneer of civilization and learning the adult secrets of the world around her means Heaven must abandon someone, too—the child she was, to become the woman her mother never had the chance to be.

For the first time ever, StarCraft enthusiasts will learn the origins of the enduring friendship between Jim Raynor and the streetwise soldier Tychus Findlay.
