There where countless times I wanted to scream for her, and ask how this could happen, why she didn't receive the help she deserved, why are there such cruel people in the world buy the truth shouldn't be sugar coated. Fantastically written, gripping and heartbreaking.
The book is a horrifying look at what some humans are capable of.
This particular story touches on the influence of culture and religious beliefs, and shows how people will use these factors as a reason to do terrible, disgusting things. It is one of the reasons I despise religion.
Caitlin (though this is not the author's real name) walks us through her story, while recounting her own mistakes and part in allowing this to happen.
I felt a connection to the author straight away, as I am a true animal lover myself.
I also felt my personality was a close match to Caitlin's, meaning I too would be vulnerable to an attack such as this (though I would not be the target audience, being male).
While I do not wish to place any blame on Caitlin for what happened, it is worth stating that vulnerable people often become the targets of violence like this. The offenders want to feel immune to the law, and their best bet is picking someone who will stay quiet.
Part of me did wonder why Caitlin didn't do more to help herself.
I assumed, based on the title of the book, that she was taken and locked in a dirty basement or something similar.
Caitlin is left to go back to her home in between being trafficked for sex.
Let's be real though - If a girl is abused from the age of 14, and doesn't get help when initially trying to reach out to people around her, would she be likely to do what is necessary to escape that situation? Or would that girl become frustrated by talking to useless therapists and doubtful doctors? Would that girl feel trapped and paranoid, having been abused by hundreds of men who seem to have connections Nationwide?
Eventually, after years of suffering at the hands of these sick rapists, Caitlin does reach out for help.
My heart goes out to Caitlin and the other victims of these traumatic abuses.
I got very angry while reading this, because there is so much injustice in this World and it can sometimes feel like the bad people get away with what they are doing.
While the story is written from the author's perspective, and there may be other sides to the story (not from the rapists), I found myself asking 'What the heck are her parents playing at?!' throughout this book. Caitlin falls into the hands of these disgraceful pedos at the age of just 14. Her parents seemingly ignore what is happening, as does the policeman who is contacted when this first begins.
What did I get from reading this?
More cynical maybe.
It is not an uplifting read, that is for sure.
Reality is sometimes hard to face ...
But this book is a strong reminder to speak out against injustice.
Suffering in silence only makes you feel more isolated and trapped.
Caitlin has been damaged badly by this trauma. Both her children have terrible men for Dad's - Men they will never meet.
Some people won't believe the story, because it is so hard to believe people are capable of this.
But they are.
Some will believe the story is written to incite hatred towards Muslim men.
That is not the case.
But we do have a problem, and the fear of being accused as racist offers protection to these offending men.
Caitlin - Well done on writing this.
I hope you can move on from what happened one day.
And I hope stories like this help to end trafficking.
Oh, And I hope these awful humans get what is coming to them.
You are immensely brave Caitlyn. I wish I could put my arms around you and tell you that you did nothing wrong. Your parents failed you totally as did society. Everybody seems to think it's amazing that a few Pakistani men were jailed. There are thousands still doing it. The police take it a bit more seriously now but there is a long way to go. I could walk five minutes from my house and find at least three taxi drivers who abuse youngsters but nothing is done.
