Inside the closed community of Borough Park, where most Chassidim live, the rules of life are very clear, determined by an ancient script written thousands of years before down to the last detail-and abuse has never been a part of it. But when thirteen-year-old Gittel learns of the abuse her best friend has suffered at the hands of her own family member, the adults in her community try to persuade Gittel, and themselves, that nothing happened. Forced to remain silent, Gittel begins to question everything she was raised to believe. A richly detailed and nuanced book, one of both humor and depth, understanding and horror, this story explains a complex world that remains an echo of its past, and illuminates the conflict between yesterday's traditions and today's reality.
After remembering the cause of her best friend Devory's suicide at age nine, Gittel is determined to raise awareness of sexual abuse in her Borough Park, New York, community, despite the rules of Chassidim that require her to be silent.

Angela Sayers is on the verge of a nervous breakdown. Convinced by her controlling brother to stop taking her medication, Angela’s world unravels just a little more when she discovers she can communicate with the dead. It’s not a welcome revelation. Her dead mother was driven mad by this gift. Eager to capitalize on their mother’s fame as a medium, her brother forces Angela to publically become the unwilling heir apparent. Soon, Sayers’ Medium Services is shamelessly exploiting the fears of the most vulnerable—the elderly, the feeble-minded, the grieving—for obscene profit. Uncertain if her increasingly fragile state of mind is caused by lack of medication, sleep deprivation, or guilt, Angela endures a plague of sleepless nights. If she’s going to have any semblance of a future, she knows she must find a way to confront her own demons—including the fear that it’s all in her head. When they are hired to cleanse an old orphanage that is genuinely haunted, it’s up to Angela to get everyone out alive. But with reality slipping away, can she escape the prison of her mind long enough to save them?
