Product Description

Product Description

At just fifteen years old, Geena had no choice but to leave home. Without an education or any real options, she found herself being lured into the sex industry by the promise of big money and the validation of strangers, she turned to drugs and alcohol to numb the pain of day to day life as a call girl and to overcome the emotional scars of her past.

But even in her darkest hours, Geena refused to accept her circumstances and never stopped striving for freedom and a better life. Eventually, she found the strength to turn things around and set herself on a path to a brighter future.

Now, Geena has a double university degree, a successful career in corporate management and is in a loving relationship.

Call Me Sasha is the inspirational account of one woman's journey from sexual abuse through prostitution to eventual salvation. It is raw with honesty, compelling and at times even laugh out loud funny as Geena Leigh recounts the highs and lows of her fascinating life in the sex industry.

This is a very readable book of the amazing double life led by Geena following the abuse by her father. The story is compelling and even more incredible is how Geena survived and blossomed into the amazing woman she is today.

4.0 out of 5 stars Told with candour and simplicity 11 Jan 2014
By Shelleyrae - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Call Me Sasha, subtitled 'Secret confessions of an Australian call girl', is a memoir of Geena Leigh's extraordinary journey of homelessness, drug addiction, and prostitution and her eventual triumph in reclaiming her life.

A difficult childhood, marred by a volatile and abusive father and a disinterested mother, resulted in Geena leaving home at fifteen. Despite an admirable initial attempt to keep up with her education and support herself with with a full time job, easy access to alcohol and marijuana inevitably interfered with her goals. Broke, in a bad relationship and desperate for something to change, prostitution seemed somehow to be a solution. Despite a general distaste for sex, and little experience, Geena quickly became enmeshed in the life, appreciating the financial rewards and a feeling of belonging amongst her colleagues, ignoring the slow erosion of her fragile sense of self worth. It took decades for Geena to finally extract herself from the life, detoured by addictions to alcohol, heroin and cocaine, an arrest in Greece, rape and abortion. After hitting rock bottom at age 32 she began the arduous process of putting her life back together, earning double degrees, detoxifying, and at age 37, finally turned her back on prostitution.

I always find memoirs challenging to review as obviously the 'story' is deeply personal. I feel Geena relates her journey honestly and without sensationalism. Necessarily there are some explicit descriptions of Geena's sexual experiences, and blunt recounts of drug taking and violence, but these scenes are simply illustrations of truth, rather than attempts to shock. I appreciate that Geena takes responsibility for the direction her life took, though it would have been easy to blame everything on her parents and others, and I admired the way in which she eventually made the decisions necessary to change her life.
I did sometimes feel their was a sense of distance between the memory of events and the narrative, which is not altogether surprising, but occasionally results in a lack of emotional context except in moments of real crisis.

Written with candour, simplicity and courage, Call Me Sasha is an interesting, and ultimately inspiring memoir. I hope she finds lasting strength, love, happiness and peace.

5.0 out of 5 stars from Tragedy to triumph 26 May 2014
By Catherine Kennedy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Sasha, not her real name, has written a confronting and shocking autobiography of her life to date. If any bad thing could go wrong for a young girl it did with Sasha. This story tells of how unsafe a nuclear family can be. The darkness takes many turns and each one seeming worse than what went before. In the end Sasha gets out of the mire and into the sunshine.A classic

5.0 out of 5 stars solid story and a great read 11 April 2014

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Geena tells us about her tormented life through childhood as she endures abuse and a life of entrapment. Her release is self driven and motivating. I enjoyed the book, heavy enough to make you think but with a light airy veneer which lightens its "load"
