Publisher's Summary

For overprotective parent Alyson Ward, any time her daughter, Lyla, is out of sight is reason to panic. So it's a big step for her when she lets Lyla attend a sleepover at her cousin's house. Comforted by the knowledge that her sister, Tricia, is the chaperone, Alyson does the one thing she never thought possible: she lets go and trusts that her daughter will be safe.
But Alyson's sense of peace is short lived. When Lyla comes home the next morning, she reveals something that could tear apart not only their family but also the entire community. Now, Alyson and Tricia must confront their painful shared past as they come together to help a little girl who they fear might be harboring terrible secrets similar to their own. Will the sisters be strong enough to face their demons in order to protect the child, even if it means telling their most private truths?

The Word Game

I enjoyed the book very much. The narrator got a little annoying in some parts, with her high pitch, but not enough to make me not want to listen. I would recommend this book to anyone. It tells the story of family and friends and how much they can be depended upon when one of their daughters has been sexually abused. This was very well told by the author.

I really enjoy reading books by Steena Holmes.

Book touched on an important topic; but fell short of resolving a lot of the individual stories. perhaps should have been longer to better hight light the troubles relationship between the sisters and their mother.
