Don't get me wrong, there are some good self-pubbed books out there (MY KIND OF CRAZY: Living in a Bipolar World is my best pick so far) but many of the self-published books, especially those in the personal memoir genre, are pretty awful. No matter how interesting the blurb, I'm always a little wary - is this going to be another really badly written whine?

Tell No One, however, is refreshing in its honesty and its pathos, and (miraculously!) also has very few typos, grammatical wince-fests, formatting errors, etc.

It feels a little weird giving five stars (can one really _love_ a book about child abuse?), but I can't in conscience give less.

It's evident from the moment Sarah's mother appears that she has some fairly severe mental health issues. One can only cringe at the pain of a four year old forced to deal with a highly unstable mother without support from anyone, and not being in a position to understand what is wrong.

Unusually, this book also shows a child being rescued from a horrendous situation, and beginning to heal in her mid teens - again, very refreshing. So often hope is downplayed.

There's little if any self-pity here, and much that is moving. Highly commendable, and exceptionally good (and unusual!) for a self-pubbed memoir.

One can only hope that Sarah can eventually forgive her mother just for her own sake, so that those wounds do not fester. It is, however, encouraging to anyone who has survived painful times to read of a child who has been through so much growing into a woman who has survived, even thrived, and now has a happy marriage and children of her own.

Sarah Cooper. True story.
Tell No One.
Based on a true story Sarah tells you how it was to grow up being abused. At about 10% of this book you will want kill this woman, she makes you so angry. I had to stop reading this book every so often just to gather my thoughts and give myself a chance to get my emotions in check. If you choose to read this book and I strongly advise you to please have tissues at hand.

l know 5 stars and brilliant in the title are not what you'd probably expect in a review about a child abuse survivor, but they are much deserved. This is a brilliantly written book, that charts the life of a young girl you just want to reach out and hug, and more importantly save.
l thank goodness the systems have changed that all those 'professionals' Sarah came across in her young life - doctors, teachers, etc have been better trained to spot the signs of abuse now.How could so many have missed so much!

Sarah's mother was obviously suffering from some form of mental illness, and was failed by the systems such as it was then, though 'Jims' involvement should have corrected that - getting her help or ending the cruelty.

As a mother with Bipolar myself (whose never raised a hand to my 2 boys) l feel l have to say that this level of cruelty is not generally the norm with Bipolar, even unstable. undiagnoised cases. so l do feel that there was probably some other psychiatric illness involved for her to abuse her daughter in such a horrific way - l am by no means excusing her it was still very wrong.

To Sarah, you sound like a beautiful, loving mother, daughter, & wife, Tom is as lucky to have you as you say you are to have him. Keep those positive mantras going and l hope you have all the happiness and love for the rest of your life that you so deserve. x

I agree with the other reviewer in that we need to read these types of books in order to be aware of what is going on around us. As a trainer in safeguarding children I am all to aware of the horrors that children suffer even today in the 21st century. Sarah's story shows the dilemma for these children who are emotionally ill-equipped to deal with what is happening to them and craving the love from the very one's who are torturing them. Sadly for Sarah, her final triumph lead her to be split from her younger sister.
A very powerful read, simply written and difficult to put down.
Not for the faint hearted.

This book was brilliant, very well written and how could a mother be like this to her own child, she should have been punished for this and she wasnt, and nobody picked it up from the schools to teachers, i hope that in this day and age this would not happen.
I read this book twice, one after the other, has i couldnt believe what i was reading.

It is good that Sarah found a lovely husband and went on to have children of her own,
