Book Description

20 Sep 2013
"Monsters do exist, though many parents can't see them. I knew one called Bernie. He groomed me and led me away from home." It's been all over the news lately. Teenagers running away from home. Groomed and snatched from the nest by predators, before they get chance to spread their wings. Regardless of culture or social class, it's happening everywhere; online, in schools, clubs and societies. It happened to me, Moll. This is my true story, a harrowing account of my stolen youth, and my journey to take it back. A story of the ones who overlooked my situation, and a story dedicated to those who made a difference to my life. I lived in that squalid mobile home for two and a half years with my abuser. I even married him because I felt I had no way out. From the mind games of my father, to the open arms of Bernie, I was stuck between a rock and a hard place. I was helpless for a short time, but never hopeless.

4.0 out of 5 stars Written By A Very Brave Person 26 Oct 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a sad story of a young girl's abuse from a young age by a much older man. This was compounded by her family's total lack of support, and the fact that although she was the victim they laid the blame on her. She had nowhere to turn, but she was a brave and ultimately strong person and managed to get away and build a better life. I wish the very brave author well, and I hope her abuser is one day brought to justice.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth reading! 30 Sep 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I don't normally read this kind of book but downloaded it on recommendation and also because it was free. I can't say I 'enjoyed' it because no one can enjoy reading of the pain another human has suffered in the way Moll did, but it was a good book to read and mainly because Moll didn't inflict on the reader in minute deatil the abuse she suffered - most of it was left to the imagination with just a gentle hint of what she went through. I'm glad she managed to get her life together and can share the love with her children that she missed out on with her own parents.

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I couldn't put this book down, well written, an awful insight into what goes on behind closed doors and the type of filthy predators that are about grooming and letching off children. Well done for your strength to come through all this horror as you have moll! I hope this book can help others to see the light and find strength to break free. Best wishes to you.

A great read, I have not put it down since purchasing it. All the way through I was hoping for a happy ending and it makes you think, life is what you make it and it can be at times a cruel cruel world.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dirty Old Man (A True Story) by Moll French 15 Oct 2013
By Emily
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Excellent book. It is a harrowing story of lost childhood and stolen youth. The way it has been written you can visualize the squalid grimy conditions she had to endure and feel her fear, guilt and shame. I hope life continues to be positive for her now. Definitely a must read, but you will need a box of tissues!

I did not enjoy this book. Both the grammar & the spelling were bad. The author often skipped parts & then assumed the reader knew what was going on. Read more
