“Stained” by Cheryl Rainfield. Young Adult Fiction. “He plans to keep me here. Something snaps in my mind, and I go at the door like I’m crazed, slamming into it with my body, not caring about the way it jars my teeth, my bones, hurts my shoulder. I batter the door, clawing and kicking and screaming until I’m sobbing with exhaustion. I sink to to the floor, trembling and feeling sick. I hurt all over, I have to pee, and I am intensely thirsty. Don’t let me die here. Please. I never got to say goodbye. Never got to tell Mom I’m sorry, tell Dad how luck I am to have him for a father. A whimper wrenches its way out of my throat. . . . “ –from the back cover.
