Invisible Tears - An Education in Life
on 3 June 2010
WOW I just could not put this book down!
Beaten by a step mother, abused by "Uncles", let down by family, neighbors & society, a young girls struggle for love, companionship self worth & life.
This book is a true tale to often hidden away from the public eye, the details of Abbie's early Life will leave you shocked & dismayed even sick to the core but with every page turned of this young girls struggle the deeper you will be drawn in & feel touched by her world. Written from her own perspective gives this book such feeling, like your chatting to your best friend, sister or actually walking in Abigail's shoes.
Teenage years looking for an identity, love, companionship, maybe just some recognition of being an equal human being, is a struggle we all face growing up but the true reality of the cruel world she grew up in made Abbie both vulnerable & disillusioned with no clear direction. Disowned by her family thrown into societies waste bin of social care, living life without rules, laws or boundaries. Abigail's tales of being a Moddette, scooter rallies, drugs, alcohol & boys is a world we can all associate with but without truly knowing what lies beneath the cover of a victim of a world that should love & care for us.
Be prepared to not put this book down it really is so compelling, be prepared to open your heart & mind to a world no one child should ever have to walk in but most of all be prepared to accept we all have a role to play in raising our future society in a loving caring environment, stop the abusers listen to your children & never ignore the scars that will never truly heal!
Thank you Abigail for sharing you story!
