5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best but saddest stories ive ever read, 10 Jan. 2008
This review is from: No One Wants You: A Memoir of a Child Forced into Prostitution (Paperback)
This was one of the saddest stories i have ever read. I think its amazing how Celine has found the courage to tell her story. I think its very sad the way her family felt the need to leave the reviews they did knowing all she did in life.I disagree with the negative comments on her writing style. A fantasic read i would highly reccomend.

I read this book in two days, unlike some I found it very readable and gripping. Celine's childhood was so brutal and horrific it saddened me deeply. Why did no one reach out and help this young child who was obviously being mistreated and abused. People knew and ignored it, such a sad reflection on Irish society of that time, who thought so little of an illegitimate child. Why was the christianity of catholics nowhere to be seen,
Why did teachers, gardai,and priests ignore. her sad plight, Why did her mother never secretly visit her, seeing as she was being fostered surely she would have been allowed, but at no time did she ever try!! Who placed her in the care of such a wicked old woman. It is hard to understand how it was allowed to happen.
I am amazed at the criticism of this book by Celines relatives, she felt she wasn't loved by some, including her mother. Why didn't they reach out to her instead and put there own hurt behind them, and attempt to sort things out. Surely compassion and empathy for all the suffering she endured, as well the loss of her little son would have been the right response. But maybe it is not too late yet. I have nothing but admiration for this wonderful courageous woman.
