WAKE UP MUMMY
First I would like to say to all sellers who lists books like this, PLEASE, PLEASE DO NOT LIST THEM AS GOOD BOOKS, THEY ARE NOT FICTION, THEY ARE THE STRUGGLE OF YOUNG PEOPLES LIVES AND THE DESPAIR, FEAR,COURAGE, SEX ABUSE, ETC THAT THEY FACED ON A DAY TO DAY BASIS. They are not good books, as some sellers list them as, they are books of courage and the fight to live a normal life. It would be much better to list them as books of COURAGE. I SPEAK FROM THE HEART AS A VICTIM OF ABUSE,a barrier that in my 56yrs I am only now starting to BREAK DOWN, and feel I am a person in my own right. SO PLEASE SELLERS LIST THEM OF BOOKS OF COURAGE, THEY ARE TRUE EVENTS and need to be treated with respect and dignity, and compassion for the victims of this terrible crime that has been done against them, and I am sure a 100% of victims have had their lives ruined forever, trust me it NEVER, NEVER GOES AWAY, Something may come up on the t.v, whilst you are out, in the papers, someone talking about it, or saying I read a good book it was about abuse!!!! which hits you like a bomb, and you can feel yourself retreating back inside that barrier you have built up around yourself.
SO, PLEASE, PLEASE think about your listings and SPARE A THOUGHT FOR THE VICTIMS AND FOR THE LIFE THEY ARE NOW LEADING, AND HOW THEIR LIFE MAY HAVE TURNED OUT, because of the abuse, violence that they have had dealt to them as children who could'nt defend themselves against these brute's.
Sorry to have gone on, but I feel so much for the victims of these books, as I once was the victim, I have cried writing this for the victims and for myself about the childhood that was robbed from us. I read this type of book about COURAGE every now and then, when I feel low and cannot get horrid thoughts out of my mind, It reminds me that I am not the only one, there are thousands, upon thousands of victims out there, who need understanding the chance to talk and to be shown respect and most importantly the trust of another human being, and believe me to trust someone again is the hardest thing to do.
As for thr book, WAKE UP MUMMY, Anna and her brother chris go through violent physcial abuse, Anna sexual abuse from her mothers partner, of which the mother knows and turns a blind eye to its happenening.From a very early age Anna has to look after her younger brother as their mother is to drunk to care about them, food for them is very hard to come by, every night Anna was abused/raped by her mothers partner as her mother lays drunk down stairs, the only restpite they have is when they go and stay with their granny, aunts and uncles, then Anna and Chris are to afraid to say anything, and start to rebel and become also withdrawn in their own barriers as like all abuse victims they are threaten with either more acts of violence,or by saying if you tell "I will go to prison".When Anna and Chris start to become teenagers they follow in their mothers ways,by getting drunk, shop lifting, and Anna because she was groomed into having sex was to afraid to say no to men, so she had sex with any man, Many times the children where in fear of their lives as the so called step father used to go crazy. The mother would have an open house for drunks and druggies, whilst the children would be trying to sleep up stairs, Anna was in fear of a drunk trying to get in her bed.
These two little children knew nothing but despair, the need to be loved, to be enable to trust someone, a really heart breaking book.Read full review
