Anya’s writing is flawless though bit repetitive as she describes her time living in a caranyone can call me partial for not complaining about it I hope your book helps many that have been through the same thing, to at least be able to express themselves and to talk about it.
Apart from this, the book is also about survival and courage! Not blaming anyone for what happened to her, in my opinion, shows extremely strong character and loyalty, which is amazing considering what horrid things she went through.

Isn’t this an inspirational tale of a girl who faced all the tribulation to end up into a stable life again with hopes. I plan to visit her blog to see how she’s getting on. It must take a lot to endure what she has and then to go on to document it in a book.
Abahdoned continuing to use this website, you agree to their use. We would all respond differently…. And seriously, the abuse scenes are so descriptive and detailed that I felt myself cringe a number of times. Its called a life worthwhile. I could keep that for more petrol…I had slipped through the net.
And on the other hand, as I was reading, it helped me realize how much, much more abuse others have and are still going through, have been so much more than what I went through during my childhood life, a father who abandoned me when Pters was two years old, a mother who lived a very dysfunctional life growing up passed her problems to her children, who suffered mental and physical abuse!

May 17, Sabrina Rutter rated it really liked it Peers But her partner subjects the little girl to horrific mental and physical abuse.
I found it a little difficult to keep track of all of the different people mentioned but maybe that’s just me. How I lived in my car like that for the best part of a year in the end; baking in the summer and almost dying, literally, several months later when parked up in the woods, it turned into one of the coldest winters we had had in years.
To read horrible tales of fiction never bothers me for a very long time as I know that may not have happened to real people, but reading a memoir like this is a stressing affair as I have a habbit of immersing myself completely into a book, I get attached to the characters very easily and a book like this gets me into a saddening mode.
