"... a sobering look into the terrifying world of child abuse as seen through the survivor's eyes... a five-year-old boy."
"The reader is easily transported."
"I found myself praying for him throughout the book. I found myself cursing and talking out loud and comforting him."
"... then there was his childlike vocabulary, his bright mind, his utterly sweet spirit, even his ignorance of what was actually happening on every level, it was all like a buffer against the horror of it."
"Truly horrifying, heart-wrenching story of a childhood gone wrong; hurt by the ones who were meant to love and protect him."
"... all the more heartbreaking as the young boy tries to understand why he is "bad", believing that is the reason that he is continuously abused and punished."
"I'm glad I read this one. I doubt I would have been able to get through it if hadn't been that it was written so matter of factly by the perspective of the child, talking to his teddy as he had no-one else... you can't really say you "enjoyed" reading something like this, as it's very painful. But it gripped me and I would highly recommend it!"
From the Author
I wrote this to give a child that never had one a voice. I also blog as I go. The blog is mostly for my journey. To get those thoughts out that linger in my mind until I am driven crazy. Its sharing. Maybe someone reading will realise they are not alone. Maybe when someone comments I will realise that too.
We all walk along different paths, but sometimes, when the road is rocky, the way to go is unclear and you just need that helping hand. Its good to look over the canyon next you and see someone else doing the same.
Give them a little wave. Smile say Hi. And know that why ever you are here reading. If your struggles plague you. You are not alone.
The book or blog maybe triggering. Please read with caution if you have been a victim of abuse in any kind.
