The End of My World

The shocking true story of a young girl forced to become a sex slave



A harrowing memoir about a phenomenon that is becoming increasingly common and needs to be stopped - 13-year-old girls being groomed then pimped by teenage boys

Now available in an updated edition called Exploited, available in print and ebook.

'I'd never have guessed that when your world's tumbling down you can carry on as usual. But it wasn't like I had a big sign on my back saying "I've been raped." Nobody noticed a thing.'

Emma was just 13 when her happy childhood came crashing down. She had no idea the young lads she and her friends met every Saturday in the shopping mall weren't all they seemed.

The boys were part of an organised gang targeting innocent young girls, grooming them for prostitution. Captivated by the ring leader, Emma didn't see the first brutal rape coming. From then on, her life was never her own ...

This is the harrowing true story of how a nice girl from a good home found herself drawn into a trap of degradation and violence, frightened for her life and not knowing where to turn. But it is also the story of finding the courage and inner strength to risk everything, and escape.
