One afternoon a polite young boy, Elio, meets his tutor’s secret lover. When he confides in her, sharing an even bigger secret, she’s convinced he’s joking and bursts out laughing.

Seven times. That’s how often, according to research, an abused child has to ask for help before anyone intervenes. How does it happen that people turn away, or fail to pay attention, so often? (Christine Wiederkehr)
