"Who Owns Kelly Paddik" by Beth Goobie

Kelly Paddik is a troubled teen who cannot escape the haunting memories of being raped by her father. Although he's no longer in the picture, his memory is locked in her brain. From the very first pages, we follow Kelly as she is sent to yet another girls' home. All she wants to do is escape, but escape from what?

Using tight, restrictive spaces throughout the novel, Goobie does a great job allowing the reader to experience the same isolated, oppressive, trapped feeling that Kelly expreinces both mentally and phisically. This book really grabs your attention, and it's a quick, easy read. I'd highly recommend it.

I'd rate this Five out of Five stars!
