About the Book (Excerpts & Info)

In the world of child abuse and trauma, silence is never golden; silence is deadly. The young Brad Fielding is forced to understand the bitter meaning of those words early in his life. Unable to tell anyone the secrets of his home life, he turns to his behavior for help in communicating with the adult world. In an effort to gain help for his mom, Brad defiantly stands in stark opposition to every force and institution that confronted his misbehavior. Completely misunderstood, he is taken from home where he sacrifices his childhood; but never his heart. Working to his capacity to stabilize, Brad always keeps alive the hope of one day finding at least one normal adult who cares about him, and in so doing, he discovers the secret that children who misbehave do not need counseling; their family needs therapy.

Not Me, Not Ever will expose the lasting tramua inherent to an abusive history. Coming to know Brad Fielding and the symbols he held on to will give you strength to not only say, "Never", but to mean exactly what you say and always what you do in the face of abuse.

Deftly constructed at 264 pages, Not Me, Not Ever: The road map of an oppositional-defiant American boy is being aggressively promoted to appropriate markets with a focus on the Family/ General category.
