Author Tremayne Mooreabout this book: This book (DDBS for short) is reflective of my childhood sexual abuse. There's a twist in that this book addresses teenage suicide and how it affects people's attitudes today. The inspiration came from looking at the next generation and hearing multiple teenagers telling me they are abused and are punished because they spoke up about it. This book is aimed at teenagers, parents, counselors, guardians and social workers. It took about a little over a year to write this novel. The title came when my editor ran across a sentence in my novel and suggested the novel should be DDBS. The cover was chosen because this story is through the eyes of an abused child and he journals what happens in his life. The hardest part of writing this book was the suicide note. Many people don't know this, but I went through a painful breakup of a friendship late last year and I was scared that I was going to take my life. I did a lot of writing to friends expressing my pain (without even thinking this would go into the novel), but received a deafened ear. Surprisingly, the way the story was going, those writings landed in my novel and it fit perfectly. I didn't have to do much research because I am a child sexual abuse survivor.

What I learned from writing this book is that this is not for me, this is about saving a life. We have to rid ourselves of selfishness and bear one another's burdens. To my readers: I ask that you put yourself in the shoes of an abused child before you tell them to either "grow up" or "get over it." If you say something like that to a child or you take the road of abandoning them, their risk of committing suicide goes up drastically.
