Champagne Alley: Tammee

Crouched in a closet, covered in blood, comforting her now-mute brother, Tammee Lewis was as frightened as any 13-year old girl would be. But because she knew she had to be strong, both for herself, and for her brother, she ventured out. What she found would change her life forever. Her family would be torn apart. Life as she knew it, however abnormal, was over. Tammee’s life would now be filled with shelters, examinations, and visits from detectives. Haunted by her past, frightened of her uncertain future, Tammee must grow up - and quickly if she wants to survive. Champagne Alley is raw, emotional, and sometimes violent, but it depicts a life that, unfortunately, some children must endure. While this is a work of fiction, readers should be aware that some of the content of this book might be disturbing.
