After the successful publication of her riveting book, “The Voice”, in October 2012, author Zelda Claassen returns too quickly with another intriguing and eye-opening book. Mel tells a moving tale that will inform the readers of the grave effects of child abuse not only to the victims, but also to the people around them.

In this book, readers will follow the story of Mel. The police found her late one night. They found her just in her underwear, walking in the rain, clutching a teddy bear, and when they approached her, she got very aggressive. They couldn’t get any information from her. All she told them is that her name is Mel. They don’t know anything else so far and also don’t have any missing person’s report fitting her description. Actually, Mel was raised in a dysfunctional family and was molested by her stepfather, which made her experience emotional turmoil, using and abusing people to her own advantage. Will she heal her wounded soul with love and patience, or will she destroy those caring for her?

Writing with passion that reveals true-life scenarios, Claassen successfully intertwined the right elements to inform, captivate and teach the readers about an important issue faced by many. Mel promises to educate its readers about child abuse and molestation and gives them insight on how to address the issue.
