I remember reading this book in the late 90s. It is about a young black girl who was adopted by a white couple. The 'father' raped her on her sixteenth birthday. I think she cut him and the mother realizes what happens when she returns home. They divorce. The mother goes away to Africa to do missionary work. The girl finds out she is pregnant after she ran away from home. I dont remember if she lost the baby or is she had an abortion. There was a boy whom she liked and when she went to his house on the night of the attack, his mother sends her away. She becomes a famous singer and reunites with her mom and the boy. Her father becomes a recluse and attempts to vilify her when she becomes famous. Any takers. I think the title is the girl's name and it may begin with S.
