When My Heart Was Wicked

When My Heart Was WickedWritten by Tricia Stirling


Ms. Stirling has tapped into many of the serious issues our students face every day. Abandonment, child abuse, death in the family and the upheaval of custody battles, being bullied and tricked by people you think you can trust. Wow, it was heart breaking to watch Lacy navigate the murky waters of crazy behavior by her mother and loving her anyway. I like a little magic in my realistic fiction, so this really filled my needs. It could have ended so badly, but sixteen year old Lacy was wise beyond her years and pulled herself out of her ‘wicked heart.’ I enjoyed this book, I appreciated the message it passes on to our young people.
