After Amerley is raped by her employer's son she realizes she two choices--stay quiet and keep her job or live her truth and speak up for herself and for justiceGhana. Eldest of four girls, Amerley is offered a job working for one of her mother's old school friends. She has to accept: her wages will feed her family, help her sisters stay in school, and ensure that her mother won't have to worry about them. Amerley's move to Accra isn't easy, but she soon settles into her new life away from her small village-- until she is raped by the son of her employer. Torn between keeping quiet to keep her job and speaking up for herself and for justice, Amerley must decide how to live her truth, and the impact of her choice will be felt through her entire community.-- adapted from jacket
