On Process and Pain
A Conversation in School Library Journal with Debut Authors Mary Cecilia Jackson & Sonja K. Solter
Chosen by BookRiot as one of the Most Anticipated Books of 2020
"...Told with a poetic narrative...[When You Know What I Know] dares us to observe the victim’s internal and external struggles: the disbelief from loved ones, her own feelings of guilt and disgust, the way relationships get a new shape, all consumed by the grief, and shame, and pain. But this book is also a journey of hope, of finding stronger family ties with those who believe the victim, the sufferer’s understanding of her own innocence..."

Carina Isabel Dias Marques Pereira

"Solter emphasizes the emotional effects both of the molestation and of the disparate reactions [Tori] encounters when others hear about it. This offering of hope after trauma is, importantly, unromanticized."

― Kirkus Reviews

"Written with leap-off-the page boldness and sensitivity, Sonja K. Solter's When You Know What I Know is as fresh and profound a story of hope in the aftermath of tragedy as I have ever read. Young readers will hang on every word of Tori's confusion, pain, and hard-won renewal. A triumph!"

Tony Abbott, author of The Summer of Owen Todd and The Great Jeff
