Based on the true story that shocked the world in 1965.

In the early summer of 1965, 16 year old Sylvia Likens stepped foot into 3850 East New York with hopes and dreams. She left the house three months later, emaciated with burns, bruises and scratches. What happened in those endless months would later be described as "the worst crime ever committed in the state of Indiana". This is the story of a girl who had hopes and dreams.

This is Sylvia's story.


2. Disclaimer

Please note that this book is written in first person from Sylvia's point of view, however it is in no means that I truly understand her feelings and emotions during her stay at 3850. I have tried my best to follow the court transcripts to deliver an accurate view on what took place. Some scenes in this story are purely fictional. 

Please be aware that some scenes contain graphic material.

This is all in memory for Sylvia Likens, and to hopefully continue to help raise awareness for child abuse.
