I am looking for a book about two girls who were sexually abused by parents and touched with dead animals and going to graveyards
Thanks for asking! How long's it been since you read the book for class, and do you have an impression of whether it was a recent or older story then?
Around Omaha, eight times in ten when someone's looking for a book about ritualistic abuse of children, the book they're looking for is The Franklin Cover-up, an account of a local scandal involving the alleged abuse and trafficking of foster children with a cult to add drama. Thirty years after the incident and twenty years after the book was first published, it remains one of the most-requested books in our collection.
It's a sentence I honestly never thought I'd write, but: if the Franklin scandal book isn't the one you're after, I'd encourage you to take a look at Wikipedia's hub for 'Satanic ritual abuse.' While true and horrifying accounts of child abuse are never in short supply, the necrophilia/graveyard elements give a strong echo of the late-80s/early-90s wave of incidents. And, credit where credit's due, Wikipedia offers a pretty good summary of high-profile events and the books and media that were published in response.
Best of luck, and thanks again for contacting us - feel free to email back or call 402-444-4800 with further questions, I'll just be busy washing my hands and hoping the search didn't catch me an FBI watchlist.
