Publisher's Summary

The moving true story of a little girl with Asperger syndrome, controlled and abused by the one person she called her friend.

Taylor had always struggled to make friends - she felt 'different'. Taylor never knew her father, and her mother wasn't around much. She just didn't understand people and was alone and scared most of the time.

That was until, aged just 11, an older married man called Tom befriended her. She loved having someone who would talk to her, listen to her - a protector. But when he moved away a few months later, she was easy prey to the gang of drug dealers and petty criminals who groomed and abused her, using her as a form of currency to appease their debtors and amuse their friends.

Increasingly isolated and desperate, it began to look as though the pattern of Taylor's life had been set - until she started to fight back, determined to build a safe future for herself, however long it took.

Highly recommended

I really enjoy this book. In a way that it was sad to realize her struggle as a young person especially diagnosed with asperger syndrome. I can image the mistake she made and sometimes the abuse she went through even her own close friends and love ones. I never put down this audible listening book down and kept going. I wanted to know if she lived the aftermath of her struggle.

I would give this book more than 5 star because of the plot and due to the fact it is a true story.

I would actually re-listen to this book when I have I have finish my other audible book that I have for my list.

I am also fascinated by Jane Smith. Since I am new to her writing, I think she writes good novels and this one was highly emotional. I may have listen to another audible book from her. As a result, I would recommend other audible listeners to pick this audible. One thing to keep in mind is the book has not come out yet but please listen to this audible book because it is a true story with a person that has asperger syndrome.
