'Nobody knew the truth. For all those years while people judged me, I protected those closest to me. Now it's time for the real story to be told. It's time for healing and forgiveness.'Tressa Middleton made UK history when she became Britain's youngest mum in 2006 aged just 12 years and 8 months. Her case provoked shock and outrage – but the truth behind the headlines was far sadder than anyone could ever have imagined.Born into a life of poverty and neglect, Tressa was forced to grow up fast when she taken into care at just four years old. She was returned to her mother's chaotic world but by the age of seven, she was being abused by her own brother and at 11 years old she fell pregnant with his child. For years she kept his dark secret in an attempt to hold her family together until the truth threatened to destroy her completely.In the years since the birth, Tressa has gone through more pain and turmoil than most adults experience in a lifetime – yet today she survives a brave, strong and compassionate young woman. Now, for the first time, Tressa Middleton tells her own harrowing yet poignant story – a story of hope, forgiveness and above all, love.

This true story gives a remarkable insight into deprivation, incest and cyclical poverty . We all start out so dependent on our patents . many of us are lucky to be born to good living parents who have wonderful aspirations for us . Yet if our parents themselves have been deprived we become victims of deprivation and so it can go on for generations. Tressa’s story makes you less judgemental and makes you realise that there but for the grace of god go I .

A harrowing heartbreaking story of a young girl who had her innocence snatched away, who had her years to enjoy the childhood every child deserves to be denied that in the most tragic way is just horrific to learn what this young girl went through is remarkable. A courageous young woman indeed. A compelling read for anyone that read about her story when it first hit the headlines and were curious to read her story.

I was curious as to the circumstances of this young girl becoming a Mum, vaguely recalling the headlines so long ago when I was of a similar age. An enthralling and honest book, giving insight into the life Tressa lead as a child. I’m left with nothing but admiration for Tressa.

Sometimes it just goes to show the headlines aren’t aways as simple as they seem. A very brave girl who went through so much. A good read.

Honest account of a tragic childhood

By Jooly
A brave book for a young girl who was thrust into the spotlight after abuse. No child should have to suffer like this and go through her life but she did and the way she turned out is inspirational. Wish her luck for the future
