McShane's novel, "Luthor", delves into the world of child abuse that is too often shrouded in secrecy and shame. The two characteristics that unfortunately allow it to go unchallenged. "Luthor" reminds us that there are ALWAYS multiple 'victims'. I found this novel stirring a cascade of emotions (not the least of which was HOPE) and I had to read and digest it in small portions at a time. I am so very glad I "stuck with it". I found it giving words and expressions to some feelings/thoughts that are sometimes difficult to fully label---a sure fire sign that Pol McShane is an excellent writer!!! **I would caution that there are graphic descriptions that are not well-suited for young or teen readers.** R.

Amanda will do whatever it takes to keep their secrets hidden from the rest of the world. Even if it means shutting that world out for decades.
