From the Author
This is my journey back from fear andhopelessness, and how I went from feeling like a ghost, to realizing my voiceand value. I own it and share it because it has no power over me anymore.I wrote Ghost No More because once I was swallowed by pain, confusion, and fear, and I don't want anyone in that place to stand alone.

The level of shame that victims carry is hard to explain when an adult can look at the parental dysfunction and see a monster, a child, sees themselves as the blame quite often. Even if they think their treatment is unfair, there is something about the use of shame by abusive monsters, used to brainwash their children "if you weren't born, this wouldn't happen, you are the blame for what happens to you at my hands" This is nearly impossible to erase, but books like this one, help survivors like myself see the brainwashing or what it is, a lie from hell.
This book is worth reading and could be useful for a discussion group for those that want to move past the scars that remain from the brainwashing sociopaths inflicted.
As a reader, I was left feeling in awe about the resilience and strength of this little girl who is forced to face such cruelty and neglect. Although it is sad, I felt driven to keep turning the pages by the author’s ability to draw me into her world through eloquent and honest prose. Her writing is descriptive and engaging and her child’s voice is authentic. I wanted to jump in and take this little girl to a safe and loving home. I can feel the pain of being rejected and discounted by those who are supposed to be our greatest advocates. I can see why she feels invisible , like a ghost.
As in any well-written memoir, I am invited into this little girl’s world and taken through to her adulthood where she finds healing and hope through her faith. I care about her and want her to find happiness. The redemptive ending leaves me satisfied as a reader. This is a deeply moving story about hope and the resilience of the human spirit in overcoming incredible odds. Beyond being a satisfying read, this memoir could serve as a resource for anyone who has suffered abuse and is seeking hope and healing. It can also serve as a valuable resource for professionals who serve the abused population.
I'd definitely love to read more writings from this author.
As if that weren't horrific enough, CeeCee endured abuse of a different kind at the hands of her maternal grandfather.
Yet unbelievably, CeeCee continued hoping she might win her mother's love - an impossible task.
James details her young self's childhood in a way that is both heartbreaking yet leaves readers unable to stop hoping this vulnerable child who has endured so much will finally find the happiness and security she deserves.
Since this book was written and narrated by CeeCee, beginning with her horrendous childhood, of necessity the early parts of the book use simplistic, age appropriate language. However, because of this simplicity, the reader may decide not to go forward with it. This would be a big mistake because as CeeCee gradually matures, so does her language. No easy feat for an author!!
Ms. James slowly builds tension, so that it reaches a point in which putting the book down is no longer an option. You feel that you must discover what happens to the characters, particularly CeeCee.
Throughout her life, this poor child had been unloved, criticized, and emotionally and physically abused by her sadistic mother. Also, she was sexually abused by a close family member. You will experience every conceivable emotion, running the gamut of gut-wrenching pity for the child to intense hatred for her sadistic mother, her lecherous relative, and others who emotionally diminished CeeCee’s self-confidence and damaged her psyche.
This book is the first of a series of three, but it also serves well as a stand alone book.
Accolades to you, Ms. James for being the strong woman you are and for sharing your life with strangers. This magnificent memoir may well bring hope to other abused children.
