There are fiction books that we fall into and allow ourselves to dream are true – then there are non-fiction books that we reallyreally wish weren’t true.

Reading your book about your life almost makes you feel like you were there. Its so sad that so many like you miss out on what should have been given to you, and instead you were subjected to what no child should ever be subjected to. Sorry, your blog cannot share posts by email. Anya’s writing is flawless though bit repetitive as she describes her time living in a caranyone can call me abanroned for not complaining about it Edit- After reading such accounts you realize that the life is I was unable to sleep for several nights after reading this heart wrenching book.

All I can say is that you are a very strong and amazing woman to overcome all that you have went through in your life. Anya Peters is a really good writer though.

As I read amya book, there were many tears flowing down my face, thinking about the horrific abuse you endured and so very sad how cruel people have become, especially with children!! How I salute you! Only I never did get back on my feet. I have decided to begin the new year with a new blog.

Neither, aside from the abuse, is it about anyone doing anything wrong. People baring all of their difficult childhoods and how they became better people. Reminded me of my own life! This book is about sexual abuse. Its a must to read this book. This isn’t a book about blame. If in any way this book ends up reading it an abuser please stop and reflect how much these kids suffer, especially if you have kids of your own!!!

April 2, at 7: Blog Stats 11, hits. I too am recovering from mental illness. What I am coming to believe though, after all the emails I have had about me living in my car is how many other people have felt close to that slippery slope, to the abyss of homelessness, or know somebody who has.

That whole time probably came within the definition of a breakdown.

Sep 28, Sophie Slater added it. Inspite of describing all her tormenting childhood she quickly points out that this book is not about cornering anyone but to find courage inspite of odds You are an inspiration to many.

Jul 01, Rachel Zylstra rated it it was amazing. I am glad you have finally turned your life around and told your story. There are no discussion topics on this book yet. All her terrible secrets came pouring out. I hope your book helps many that have been through the same thing, to at least be able to express themselves and to talk about it.


He was always drunk abusive and she was physically and mentally tormented at the age of six. Isn’t this an avandoned tale of a girl who faced all the tribulation to end up into a stable life again with hopes.

You are not only an amazing writer but also an amazing abanfoned. You are commenting using your Twitter account. I did it for not much short of a year in the end.

The fact that it was not a story at all but the reality of the author’s life,compelled me to read Anya’s blog wanderingscribe is her username. After all you have been through you have kept fighting, and I admire you for qnya.

I cannot put into words how moved I felt by reading your story…the whole story. I am sure and hope you have found healing.

It was really touching for me. I thought it dragged out the part of her sleeping in the car and dragged it out abandonrd to long.

October 13, at 6: This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. After reading your book the smallest things like a cup of tea of a bed to sleep in I will realise how gratefull I should be.

A truly disturbing account of Anya’s life- and her spell of homeless living around the country. Anya, I just read a copy of your book which I found in an op shop where I work as a volunteer.
