This book tells the true story about a girl named Deirdre, who grew up in an unhappy and dysfunctional middle class home. Deirdre was sexually abused by her father at a young age and witnessed him molesting other children as well. She was made to feel unwanted and "in the way" by her mother, who never gave her time or attention growing up. Effectively abandoned by both parents, Deirdre felt confused, hurt and angry. She believed that she must be bad inside, rotten even. Then, at the age of twelve, Deirdre was repeatedly molested by her eldest brother. This had a huge impact on her as she began to hate her changing body and herself. As a teenager, Deirdre's home life became volatile, unpredictable and full of endless drama, primarily due to her father's drinking. Her mother decided to move the family to America for a new start, but by this point Deirdre was nineteen and all messed up inside. This was soon to be reflected in her adult life which quickly filled with pain and suffering, bad choices and self-hate. Deirdre's story doesn't end there though. This is not just a tale about misery and misfortune - it is a story about hope and recovery, of understanding and healing.
