This Book is un-put-downable, my heart ached, and I cried most of the way through as I read the pages, I felt useless, and ashamed that girls and boy's up and down this country have and still are experiencing the atrocities that befell Teresa.
We must do something, we are living in the 21st Century, for God's sake, and yet we walk around oblivious to what is under our nose's.
All the Children's homes and Foster homes in this country should be subjected to rigorous examination, especially where drugs are used regularly. How many other girl's and boy's were put through this sort of regime, and have not managed to survive it?
Teresa you are an inspiration, and I hope your courage helps others to speak up and be counted.
This book should be advertised everywhere, to help give a voice to those who cannot speak out.
Its one book I won't forget.
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.
To all the people that have not yet read this I would advise you to because its a brilliant book.
