Ginny L. Yttrup debuts with Words (B&H), the story of a 10-year-old sexual abuse victim named Kaylee Wren. In the aftermath of the ongoing cycle of abuse at the hands of her mother’s boyfriend—not to mention dealing with her drug-addicted mother’s total abandonment—Kaylee has actually lost her voice, finding solace in the words she keeps in a box in her mind.
