This is one of those true stories that is so sadistic, disgusting, sad, and horrifying that it is hard to finish, but out of respect for Michelle Stevens I made myself listen.
Stories I have heard before of childhood molestation and physical abuse (that no one should ever have to endure) can not touch her heart wrenching tale. Made a sex slave to her piece of %$!* step father by the age of eight and not protected or even noticed by her mother, young Michelle endured emotional brain washing, physical, sexual, and mental abuse that should have killed her and would have killed most adults that I know. No teacher (stories written and pictures drawn), no school counselor (acting outrageously out of her normal character), no doctor (she almost bled to death from a botched at home forced abortion), or family member (she and her mother were isolated ) ever read the signs (multiple or split personality disorder) that even Michelle says she displayed, but I for one am thankful Michelle has told her story because in turn I will be very aware of the signs that children might show who are being abused. I could go into further details that go so far out that they almost become to hard to believe, but I will just finish by saying this is a well written and great narration of horrifically but absolutely needed work. She speaks from not only experience, but from education as well having fought her own demons to become a teacher and therapist and now is helping others who have gone through their own hell on earth. Some stories just need and deserve to be told.
Btw, I have to add that because of the material, you must be aware of young ears that may be in hearing distance when you are listen.
And...Thats My two cents worth

Opens your eyes to the taboo world of child molestation and prostitution and it's dire effects on the human psyche as an adult. The book is read by the author which helps give even more emotion to the book.

As harrowing as this book is to listen to at times it is also a source of hope, healing and unfathomable courage. Everything you think you know about MPD will be replaced with real knowledge from one who knows.
you will learn so much from this lady . I will always remember her bravery and utter honesty. I have listened to over 150 books on here and this lady moved me beyond words with her intelligence, humour and utter determination not too let the abuser win. I will carry respect throughout my life for this author. She should be very proud of what she has achieved
