Believe Like a Child
by Paige Dearth




Overview -
#1 Amazon Bestseller
Home isn't safe for young Alessa because her uncle lives there...unfortunately neither are the streets.

The beginning of this story is based on Paige Dearth's life. The remainder of this book is fiction.

Alessa's uncle is a child predator, and she's one of his victims.

At sixteen, after the death of her only friend, Alessa finds herself isolated at home with her uncle. Unable to live there, she runs away.

Alone on the streets of North Philadelphia, she encounters more people who hurt her. About to hit rock bottom, Alessa breaks free from her new tormentors and finds refuge in a shelter for homeless and abused women.

Wherever she goes, however, trouble keeps seeking her out, until she meets three people who change the course of her life. Though Alessa's bittersweet journey is fraught with challenges, she does, nevertheless, find fleeting moments of joy. Then, as she settles down, a ghost from the past comes to haunt her, threatening to destroy the very foundation of her small world and plunging her back into an abyss of despair, until she makes her final bid for escape.

**WARNING** 18+ Readers Only. Graphic content and subject matter. (This is a standalone novel)

Praise For Believe Like A Child

"This is one of the most emotional heart wrenching dark family horror stories I have ever read. This story will pull you in from the first paragraph and won't let go until the end. Alessa is a joy to know throughout her journey, you cry with her, for her, praise her, celebrate with her, fear for her. The character building was executed perfectly." - Tea Time With Marce

"Believe Like A Child will pull at your heartstrings. Powerful and complex characters leap off the pages. The dramatic ending is one that will stay with you long after you have finished the book." - Jersey Girl Book Reviews

"A fresh perspective to what it is like to live on the streets. It's breath-taking literature." - BellaOnline, Literary Fiction Editor

"A truly gripping tale of one girl's ordeal and how she survives. The twists and turns in the book will have you gasping and almost throwing your kindle out the window. I guarantee that you will not put this book down until the very end." - Books To Curl Up With
