Summary

Child Abuse True Stories presents: Volume four of Kat Ward's sensational autobiography!

The year was 1975, and at age 16, young Keri was desperate to strike out on her own.

However, as listeners of the first three volumes of this series will know, her childhood was hardly the loving, supportive, preparatory period it should have been.

Instead of family dinners and piano recitals, there were shattered dishes and abusive parents. Instead of trips to the museum, there were trips to TV studios - to be molested by celebrities. In short, her childhood was nothing short of a nightmare.

Should it really be any surprise then, after such a traumatic baptism into life, that her first foray into the adult world was hardly an unmitigated success?

From living in squalor to racking up debts, her new-found independence forced her face-to-face with many of life's grim realities. And despite waiting all her life for her freedom, she soon realised that a world without the institutional bars she was so accustomed to was just too much of a jungle. And every jungle has its predators...

But what was a girl to do? Regress back to an abusive enslavement? Or continue moving forward in a world that seemed so backward? She needed a friend - and fast.

Naturally, her understandable distrust of others didn't make things easy. Not to mention her warped idea of love. In the end though, her determination proved the deciding factor. As far as she was concerned, she'd performed her final "favour", and cried the last of her tears.

But just when she thought she'd finally left her demons behind, she found herself at the mercy of unsavoury characters yet again - and this time, without anyone to turn to...

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

Too much useless and irrelevant information

Not one of her best. The reader doesn't really need to know everything the author ate or wore each day. Really not up to the same standard as the previous books in this series

Gripped

I was gripped after listening to the first book, I hope it’s not too long for the next one. I’m a foster carer and what she has gone through is horrendous!

I loathe Millie!

I am in LOVE with the narrator and of course Keri’s story. The last book and this one are very ... anticlimactic, nothing like the first 2. The things she struggles with are things I’ve struggled with throughout life. I loathe her mother, Millie. I’m so heartbroken over nana and the way she allows this behavior from Millie, and takes her side. After all these years I had hoped nana would finally take Keri’s side, as she really needs someone in her corner. As always the narrator is so amazing, I wished she had more books that she read. I’m not really interested in anymore of “Keri” books but I will purchase the next because I cannot say goodbye to Bridget Thomas!

Have hope for the Main One

I've listened to the series and I'm still shocked 😲 that Keri who should have basic streets doesn't have them. I am intrigued to see what else happens to Keri but I will admit it does have dragging moments.

Another great one!

I love these books and the narrator. What an inspiration to anyone that was dealt a bad hand in the parent department. Inspirational and heartbreaking at the same time. Can’t wait for the next one!
