Book Description

Hi there, my name is Joey. Today I’m just another thirty-something-year-old guy, living the suburban dream in southern California. But there’s something my neighbours don’t know about me. Something you’d never guess about me. Something, that up until these past couple of weeks, I’d never dream about telling you. Something you wouldn’t believe.

I was, in the most horrific of manners, and by the most unlikely of people, sexually abused as a child.

Not shocked? Well, wait until you hear the full story…


WARNING: This book is based upon a true story of child abuse, and as such contains passages that some readers may find disturbing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Reality 25 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I found this book by accident, read the sample, bought the book and have just finished it without putting it down!!
I've read a few child abuse accounts from the survivors, but this puts such a spin on the other accounts!!
Wot a brave child he was! And he admits at the start, he's no writer. It's all transcripts from his session, recorded on dictaphone.
Read it! Read it! Read it!
I can't say that enough! And I can't give anymore information without giving it all away

5.0 out of 5 stars What an amazing story. 23 May 2015
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Wow, use have just finished reading this book and what a story! Joey, I salute you. All that happened must have been so confusing for you, it really could have been a Hollywood storyline. Never in a million years should this have happened to you,well done for helping the police take more paedophiles off the street. I wish I could speak to you in person, you are inspirational x

5.0 out of 5 stars Shocking and moving 23 Feb. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It's very brave of anyone to admit such things to their own family, let alone go public with it in this way. It's certainly shocking that anyone would take advantage of a child going through what he already had to deal with, and the way it's presented as transcripts of his therapy sessions certainly makes it a very emotional read, it really makes you think you're sat in on the sessions with him, which is both fascinating and rather uncomfortable all at once.

Certainly a memorable read.

4.0 out of 5 stars an horrific account of a shocking happening 13 July 2014
By BiddyB
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This ghastly account of what happened to young Joey makes one ashamed to be connected to the animals who perpetrated this abuse. Are we and they from the same human race? How can human beings be SO depraved.
The way it was written in dialogue made the story come across in a way that kept it moving.
The simple language of the account made it very readable and managed to paint a very real picture of how the poor boy felt and his fears about adults and who to trust for evermore.
Though such a disturbing story it held my attention throughout and it was difficult to put the book down.
Not a read for the feint hearted.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the best 31 Mar. 2014
By dc61
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Found this book boring and actually not what it appears to be from the title. It seems repetitive. It seems to be the notes of the counselling sessions that this boy/man went through following abuse but not really sure what it is trying to tell us other than don't be fooled by people who pretend to give you something for nothing and don't be alone with strangers. What on earth were his parents doing letting go on his "dream" alone? Surely alarm bells should have rung when he kept on visiting this supposed "star". They have a lot of blame in my opinion.

That sounds bad because it's not a 'happy' book. It was however, a gripping read! I would have loved for it to be in story as opposed to conversation style. Read more

If this is true it's shocking. Given what's been in the news recently it seems very probably real. Very sad.
