I recently published Dear Teddy here on Amazon and I'm looking for people to read and review good or bad. Its told from the view of a child, rather than the adult in later years relaying what happened to him. So it's a little different to other ones.
The story of a small boys life at the hands of his family. Told in the view point of the child himself. A different approach as well as touching into the slightly silent world of abused males.

Little boy little boy,
Curled in a ball.
I know your secrets,
I know them all
I write in my journal as much as I can. I talk to Mr. Ted. He is my only friend. He understands when the bad man comes. He holds my hand when I have nightmares and my mummy doesn't hear me cry. Mr. Ted doesn't tell. He won't say when my daddy hurts me. He keeps my secrets and my stories. I love Mr. Ted. He is the only one who loves me back.
I keep falling asleep. Bad things happen. I get sore all the time. But I don't know why. My mum says it's a demon. Because I got evil. Please make me be good.
