It took me around 5 hours to read this book, i just couldnt put it down,
It's one of those read's where as soon as you start it you can not do anything else for the rest of the day until you finish it,
The treatment that Teresa recieved by the people who should have been protecting her is unforgivable,
She encounters abuse after abuse and no-one believes her plea's for help,
Im amazed that she never suceeded in giving up her life.
After reading this book it leaves you with questions like "are the abusers still alive",
"Have they read this book ?" "is it still happening to others ?".
If we find it frustrating not having the answers god only knows how Teresa managed to go forward with her life and achieve all that she has managed to achieve and to go on giving other abused children and adults her full support and guidance,
My 17 year old daughter is now reading this book and finds it hard to understand that these things that happened were real.
I would definately recommend others to buy this book, its a tearful and gripping read and most of all its true.
