It is a truly inspirational story of how the wrong kind of love can destroy a child's life, and how the right kind of love can be instrumental in that child's recovery and freedom. If ever there was a story to inspire other abused children to have hope and strength, this is it.
I downloaded the sample and I was interested because Sarah is about my age and I thought I would be able to relate to her. However, I am not yet halfway through the book and she has encountered THREE paedophiles - not a paedophile ring passing her around, but THREE, unrelated, independent paedophiles. I just don't believe that. What's more, the description of the sexual abuse is more like something you would read in a top shelf magazine than the memories of a traumatized victim. It is just so graphic, as if it has been written to shock.
If I am wrong about all this, then I am very sorry Sarah, I apologize unreservedly, but this book seems to me like someone has invented a childhood of abuse to cash in on the misery of children who are genuinely abused and brave enough to tell their stories, like Dave Pelzer. I will not be reading any more of Sarah's story. I am glad that I only paid a pound for it and I wish I had believed all the negative reviews, however, I recently read Dirty Old Man by Moll French which also had a lot of bad reviews and I loved that one, so I thought I would give Sarah's Story a chance. This time the negative reviewers were right!
Thank you so much Sarah I really enjoyed this extraordinary book .
