Her terrible secret But just as her father predicted everyone blamed her Although he was eventually sent to prison Toni continued to suffer almost dying from a botched late abortion She found herself judged and rejected by her family teachers and friends forced into a world of depression and madness with only herself to rely on if she ever hoped to build a happy li.

    This book for me was a real eye opener not only does it make you appreciate growing up with a normal background and having loving parents and a wonderful childhood but it shows you that there are sick and twisted people in the world who will manipulate young people to feel superior the shocking truth of this book is somewhat scaring but the way it is written you can hear the shouts feel the pain and understand the emotions going through the young Antoinette’s head and that of the older Toni I am only thirteen so when I read this a lot of it i can relate to by that I mean being afraid of change mistaking people for who they are not but wanting so badly for them to be who you imagine in your head Not wanting to face the truth as it hurts too muchThis book is a great contribution to how modern day life can be so evilly twisted and screwed up with harsh intenton a finishing note of what I learnt from this book and what I will always remember I will say thisNot every book is a fairytale and not every story has a happy ending

    Having read another of Toni's books I found this familiar ground What she went through was truly terrible the lack of support from any members of her family was diabolical

    The blurb on the back of this autobiography describes it as 'heartbreaking and inspiring' Heartbreaking yes A little girl is systematically abused by her father over many years with the full knowledge of her mother who does nothing to help her Eventually she gets pregnant has an abortion which goes wrong and leaves her sterile and finishes in a mental institution after trying to commit suicide When her father is caught and sent to prison she is vilified and ostracised with comments like 'you must have enjoyed it or you would have spoken up sooner' The poor girl had her childhood taken from her and her life ruinedBut inspiring? Sorry no I was waiting for most of the book for the adult Toni to confront her parents to make them suffer as they made her suffer or at least to get away from them and forget they ever existed But instead she sits at her mother's death bed comforting her and still talks to her fatherOn the one hand I can understand that she is so lacking in self confidence that she cannot break away but on the other I found her dependance on these monsters frustrating and enfuriatingA disturbing and sad narration from start to finish

    It's really disturbing and sad to think that this kind of thing happens to children who can't defend themselves but what's even sad is the damage it caused Toni when she got older and realized just how twisted her family was At fourteen she was pregnant with her father's child no less and even though he was later arrested it was mostly just swept under the rug The fact that Toni lives day to day with these things is shocking I don't think there are many people out there who could be that brave and not get trapped forever in the nightmare of child abuse This book was very melodramatic but honest and hopefully it helps spread the word that this kind of thing can happen and prevents it from happening to future children

    This was really painful to read I don't mean that the book was horrible just the opposite Toni Maguire's way of writing totally drew me in and I had no problem at all envisioning the places she spoke about the situations she was in etc She doesn't get so detailed as to get boring not that at all I can't stand that and it didn't happen here thankfully I've read countless books on abuse and recovery all of it and I have yet to come across a book that hit me like this did I don't know if it was her way of writing the story itself or something else entirely but it nontheless really left me angry Angry at this girls supposed parents the rest of her family the town and it's people who chose as adults to condemn her for someone else's actions the doctor who helped her by almost killing her everyone She goes back and forth from the hospice room where her mother is now dying to her memories and usually I don't like that kind of back and forth ness but it worked very well here I definitely recommend for anyone who likes memoirsnon fiction although I do have to put a small warning in here also this really is a hard story to read and isn't for the faint of heart

    Yes this book is not fun at all but the five stars are my appreciation and respect for the writer's braveness in opening her childhood wounds

    SPOILER ALERT I don't know how to rate this book If you want to be as angry and depressed as a person could possibly be then read this book ASAP I don't know what I was thinking and don't have any clue how 1 she survived 2 she didn't kill her parents 3 people can be such monsters and finally I cannot believe that practically every single person from her own grandmother to therapists to doctors blamed a 6 year old child for being beatenraped and violently abused by her own father to the point where the headmistress of her school expelled her once she finally went against his threats and pressed charges against himand the teachers agreed She must have liked the 'sex' w her father was the general thinking by all in this book even her own mother who she told about the abuse I am so angry about this life that this woman was forced to live If you think I've given spoilers oh no there's much horror in the book than I've stated READ IT IN LESS THAN 24 HOURS Author is a clearly talented and brilliant writer whose parents tried their very best to kill her in my opinion
