The story grips you, but it's educational too. I thought I knew what "grooming" was... but I didn't. I just knew a dictionary definition of the word. This girl has lived it. I didn't really understand how a middle-class life could end up in such horrors. I didn't understand how a girl could be so ensnared by an evil gang, despite not being locked up or anything. Girl A was 'free' to do as she pleased, but the psychological hold they put on her is clear - and stronger than any chains. Her decisions are perplexing at times... but I think that just illustrates how she was gripped. And what a life some people lead - the offenders must have such a weird outlook on life - can they ever change in prison? And the poor girls. It's a cultural eye-opener - a culture within my own home county. Unfortunately, I understand that it goes on in a lot of people's home counties.
You get the feeling that she could have broken free much earlier, if she'd had any sort of support from the authorities, which also raises emotions. I'll not explain why here.
It's not a spoiler to say that she did break free in the end (it's on the front cover!)... I really hope she can use the convictions to mentally put it all behind her and move on.
I finished the book on Sunday... but it's one of those that stays in your head days later, leading me to write this glowing review now.
I have never felt the need to comment upon a product\book item on Amazon being a customer for over a decade but this book left me incensed.
What comes through very clearly in the book is that the Police, CPS, Social Services etc. etc. did not undertake their legal duties & responsibilities to the victims of the paedophile gangs. The body of evidence was there from the outset when the victims first had contact with the various legal bodies and were providing statements & evidence of what was going on in their lives.
Criminal prosecutions need to be brought forward for individuals from the Police, CPS, Social Services etc. etc. for criminal negligence and a dereliction of duty. Sorry does not cut it and we the good people of Britain citizens DO NOT accept their apology & failings from the authorities.
Can we as a community now bring pressure to bear to see individuals from Police, CPS, Social Services stand in the dock and face criminal proceedings for negligence.
Are we going to carry on paying for individuals through our tax system for failing to protect the children from the paedophiles, are we content Police officers will be promoted in the future when he or she failed to take seriously a child evidence that they were a victim of paedophilia gangs, are you content a CPS lawyer will carry on working as a barrister/lawyer earning vast sums of money when their initial decision was not to pursue the allegations in court to bring these paedophiles to justice, are we content that Social Services labelled these children as 'prostitutes' and 'they chose this lifestyle', criminal prosecutions NOW!
I'm so glad that girl A has moved a step forward in trying to gain a normal lifestyle,I wish her every success and also her daughter.
Very well written and honest.
Every parent should read as it can happen to anyone.
Hannah (Girl A) had a happy childhood on the West Lancashire coast , but when her father's business failed and the family became impoverished they had to move to a council house in an impoverished area of Manchester -Heywood- near where her parents originally came from. She was sent to a very rough school and to fit in with her peers began drinking and going out all hours and eventually playing truant, not unusual for teenagers living in poor areas
It was her introduction to a group of Pakistani older men led by the evil 'Daddy' and the cruel Tariq that began her nightmare existence that lasted two years. she was groomed by this Muslim gang, She was lured into the clutches with free food and drink, and deceptive 'friendship' welcomed by a girl from a now broken home , plied with drugs and alcohol and systematically raped by often up to twenty men a night,Her pimp ,a sadistic , twisted White girl Emma, only a few month older than her played a pivotal role in terrorizing Hannah and ensuring she did not escape the circle.Read more ›
