Oda's dad puts her bike in the garage. She will not be using it anymore. She has such a poor balance and this was the defiitely the last time that she should fall and hurt herself. That is the story Oda tells anyone who asks. But both she and her mother know that the truth is something completely different. That the truth is a story that Oda is unable to tell anyone. Not dad. Not the teacher. Not even her best friend Milad, even if he has experienced things much worse before he came to the small village where Oda lives.
Smashed is a book that hurts, for young readers wanting to do well.
