This is a shocking memoir of a difficult, abusive childhood in the 1950s and 1960s written by Laurie Matthew, a leading expert in child protection.

Reviews:
  • Erienan
A haunting book that reads like fiction but is non-fiction. The narrator's story of surviving is as hope inspiring as Viktor Frankl's work. Diamonds are made under great pressure.
  • Foginn
It was a very good deep book. I cannot say that it was "enjoyable" as it brought home so much truth in how paedophilla works.
I would recommend it to parents of young girls to read.

This book is very touching and informative onn child abuse how it happens the emotions behind it and what it does psychologically to the children, one of the most touching books ive read in my life
In fact i emailed the writer just to say how much of a good read it was, but aswell its a good read because it makes you understand how a child can become a victim to such vile predators.
Moreover, it shows why there should be a death penalty for all peadophiles as the book states "peadophiles dont stop, they get caught or they die" children are the future and we must protect them
the justice system protects these predators. I could go on on and on from my passion its obvious how good the book was, worth every penny im giving to my 11yr old sister to read children need to be aware
how nasty these pervs r and how they try to befriend them and take advantage of them . Well done to the author

Simply put, I loved this book. I read it in less than 24 hours - I couldn't put it down. Laurie's willingness to openly and honestly share her experiences of systematic abuse, betrayal, and survival is nothing short of honorable. Whether the reader themselves is a survivor of childhood sexual abuse, a parent, a social worker or someone who just comes across this book, the deep insights into the pathology of grooming that Laurie walks the reader through is harrowing and such vital information in the ongoing commitment to end childhood sexual abuse. I will be encouraging everyone I know to read Groomed.

This is an amazing story about the ritual abuse this little girl went thru and survived. I was surprised at the lack of damage it did to her. I wish she would have taken the chance and gone after all the others who abused her also. They were left free to abuse others. How can that be right?! I did find the author repeating herself quite regularly and she even contradicted herself a time or two.
