True stories you simply must read.
Ms. S. L. Bamford "Obsessive collector"
My Story: A Child Called It, The Lost Boy, A Man Named Dave
"Dave Pelzer's complete story of his agonising childhood."
A Brother's Journey: Surviving a Childhood of Abuse
"If you thought Dave Pelzer was the only one to suffer at his mother's hands, give his brother's book a look."
The Little Prisoner: How a Childhood Was Stolen and a Trust Betrayed
"A female tortured by her evil stepfather"
Behind Closed Doors
"Martine McCutcheon's mother's story. Touching."
Don't Ever Tell: Kathy's Story: A True Tale of a Childhood Destroyed by Neglect and Fear
"Currently reading this one. Recommend the film The Magdalene Sisters for quick background info"
Sickened: The True Story of a Lost Childhood
"Living with a mother with Munchausens by proxy, Julie was subjected to much unnecessary medical intervention. An interesting story, but not great writing..."
"Beautifully written and gripping, as with all Torey Hayden's books, Sheila is an intruiging subject and one you'll crave more info on."
Tiger's Child: The story of a gifted, troubled child and the teacher who refused to give up on her
"Sheila's story continues. Again beautifully written."
Ghost Girl: The true story of a child in desperate peril - and a teacher who saved her
"Torey encounters Jadey, a child who appears to have been subjected to ritualistic abuse."
Twilight Children: Three Voices No One Heard - Until Someone Listened: The True Story of Three Voices No One Heard - Until Someone Listened
"Focus is on elective mutism - Torey's area of specialism."
Just Another Kid: Each was a child no one could reach - until one amazing teacher embraced them all
"Sometimes adults need just as much help as the kids..."
The Kid: A True Story
"Very similar in content to A Child Called It"
The Kid Moves On
"I have this book published under "Moving on". The sequel to "The Kid"."
Just a Boy: The True Story of a Stolen Childhood
"The child of one of the Yorkshire Ripper's many victims."
The Burn Journals
"Not a tale of abuse, but rather a boy who set himself alight... strangely touching..."
"A vivid account of anorexia."
Hannah's Gift: Lessons from a Life Fully Lived
"The story of a two year old with cancer. I cried my eyes out at something her older brother said to her. Beautiful book. Beautiful."
George and Sam
"A mother's very interesting account of her two very different autistic sons."
Ugly. The True Story of a Loveless Childhood
"I just finished reading this. Utterly readable and well-written. I'm looking out for "Beyond Ugly" now."
