A triumph of the individual over the system and her abusers,
This review is from: Disruptive: How I triumphed over years of abuse from those who were supposed to protect me (Paperback)
This is a real page-turner. I have to admit I approached the book with some trepidation; it came highly recommended but it is not normally the kind of subject matter I would choose to read. But I have to say that it had me gripped, and on so many levels: the complete failure of the 'system', the horrendous story of abuse, the final triumph of the individual over both the system and her abusers. Ultimately this is quite a positive story (yes I know on first examination that is hard to believe, you need to read it to understand) which provides an insight into a world of which most of us happily have no experience. The book is well written, thought provoking, and pretty much any other of the usual good-read clichés: a tremendous read. Since reading it I have discovered that Angela Bayley has a blog on which readers can follow her progress.
