Publisher's Summary

Child abuse true stories presents: volume 2 of Kat Ward's sensational autobiography!

Being a teenager isn't easy. Even kids who grow up in happy, loving households encounter all manner of problems during adolescence. But children who were abused, raped, bullied, mistreated, or neglected during their earliest years, face the transition at an even greater disadvantage. For they not only come completely ill-prepared, but also badly scarred, and often are still licking the wounds from their childhoods.

This second volume of Kat Ward's sensational autobiography covers her plight as she grew in stature, and began to challenge the authority structures that had ruled over her young life so cruelly up until that point. It was a desperate rebellion in true teen spirit, but even with all the will in the world, she was still a child in a world full of grown-ups. And if there's one thing an abuser knows all too well, it's how to wield their power over the powerless...

Disclaimer: This is a true story of child abuse. Discretion is advised.

Bitter truth!!!

I originally listened to Keri 1 and was horrified to the levels of abuse she endured. When I saw there was a Keri 2 I had to purchase to finish out the story! If you're are searching for a story about a young girl making her way through life surrounded by incompetent/abusive adults, this is it!

Can’t stop listening

I can’t stop listening to Kat Wards series about herself, her tragic upbringing and early life. The book is very descriptive and thoroughly written and I’m horrified how much sorrow and hardships one child has been forced to endure. The second book describes how Keri is taken to a children’s home where abuse continues although in another form. Keri meets two other girls who becomes her friends and tries several times to run away and succeeds on one occasion, where she starts up a new life away from her family but her longing for her grandmother brings her to hitchhike back and was caught and again brought to the children’s home she once run away from. Best book I’ve listened to in a very long time.
