A burning car, a trap, and a mother abandoning her child alone, this story cover the endurance of the human soul. Six-year-old CeeCee is a child desperate for a touch of approval, the love of her mother. Her reality is a life of neglect, homelessness, dirty secrets, and abuse.
Through foster care, padlocks on the food cupboards and physical abuse, CeeCee holds onto something precious, the only thing that drives her on - hope.
Ghost No More is a memoir of tragedy, love, and strength that proves joy can be found beyond abuse.

-Hauntingly beautiful. Honestly and unflinchingly written, Ghost No More held me in its grasp as I turned from shock at the cruelty of some people to awe at the strength of one little girl to overcome. It is more than the story of an abused child; it's a story about the capacity of the human spirit to survive and thrive. It will leave you feeling empowered in your own life journey. -- Leslie G Nelson, author of Everything I Needed to Know About Parenting I Learned in Prison: A Correctional Officer's Taletopics- child abuse, women's memoir, hope, health, eating disorders, teen, depression, true crime, recovery
