Quite a disturbing read especially as you can see how this situation could happen. You feel for the Eyo and so badly want something positive to happen for her. You also read about other characters stories as they are connected with Eyo. A real eye opener. Very sad to see how human beings can be so cruel to others. Very well-written but very disturbing at times. Read in two days and although an emotional read you really become involved and believe in the character. Will now read something else by the same author.
although the author states this is a work of fiction, I can believe that it reflects the truth in all ways. It's a heartbreaking story of a little girl suffering abuse from all sides, and accepting it as the norm. Eyo was let down by everyone who should have protected her. It strongly reflects the failings of social services. A very enjoyable but sad read.
This book is a real eye-opener. It is full of abuse and tragedy. It opens your eyes to child trafficking- and child slavery in the UK>. However this writer is so good at telling the story that it moves along at a fast pace- keeps you grtipped till the very end. Fantastic read and informative.
Like so many others, I read this in a few days. I couldn't put it down because of the constant hope that Eyo's fortunes would change. I will definitely seek out other books by the author as this was well written and I'm keen for more.
Excellent read. Can this be the reality facing young girls from Nigeria and other countries? Abused at home..abused abroad. No safe haven. Their story is very well told in this book. I couldn't put it down till it was finished. Thrilling book. I just hope it's more fiction than fact.
