Publisher's Summary

Tressa Middleton made UK history when she became Britain's youngest mum in 2006 aged just 12 years and eight 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 was 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.

Heartbreaking and genuine

This was not an easy listening. I usually cant 'put down' a good book once I've started however this particular story made me pause several times to be able to catch my mind. Her reflections on her life are simple but strikes you right in the chest, I found myself emerged in my own imagination, seeing the places, knowing the people, feeling the pain. It came alive in a way that only those special stories do. The ones you will have a hard time letting go of.

Raw, heart breaking, eye opening.

I loved this book. It was wonderfully written and beautifully read. Such an honest, raw, account written by Tressa. It was heart wrenching and the courage Tressa must have, to be through what she has and to share it with others is so incredible. An eye opening must read!
