Child abuse, one of the many problems that persist in India today, is arguably the filthiest. Of late, we have heard of instances of children being exploited but the most gruesome abuse is child sex abuse. The Silent Scream takes up this issue which people normally turn a blind eye towards. Through the subtlety quoted instances mentioned in this narrative non-fiction we are exposed to the disturbing lives of child predators and their innocent, young unassuming victims. The Silent Scream is a ready guide to create awareness about this rampantly growing evil with the aim of sensitising the general public on the ways in which sex abusers operate. A humble effort is also being made to counsel the victims and carry forward the war against this menace so that other innocent souls are saved.

My Review

It was difficult for me to complete the book not because it is bad but due to the fact that I am a mother of three children. The book on child abuse sent chill down my spine. Children are not treated as kids any more. Every parents should be on high alert. There are a lot of facts depicted in the book  that are difficult to believe. Truth is sometimes stranger than fiction. The book is a must read for every parents.
Victims are always isolated and denied the right to live a normal life. The book tries to educate us as to how we should handle the victims, God forbid, is someone is there
