Damaged: The Heartbreaking True Story of a Forgotten Child
About this deal
Damage is Shakespearean in nature, and the drama that plays out in the pages is impossible to turn away from. Crianças maltratadas ficam psicologicamente afetadas e são muitas as que devolvem à sociedade a violência que as traumatizou. Quando assim acontece, em regra, são tratadas como um “lixo” social a reciclar, pois no estado em que se encontram, são tidas como seres socialmente indesejáveis. Tahle kniha vás donutí přemýšlet nad tím, jaká zvěrstva se možná dějí dětem hned vedle za zdí u sousedů.

The younger woman in question happens to be his son's fiancée, and the man in question happens to be a member of Parliament. Like the proverbial car crash you can't stop looking at, Damaged is a book about a wounded soul whose story you must keep reading.
The novel is perhaps not perfect as a whole, and one sometimes becomes irritated at the "oh aren't we so frightfully correct and conventional" self observational conversations spouted by the characters as a sort of authorial shorthand. This true story follows the life of Jodie, a troubled girl with a terrible past - but is shown through the eyes of her Carer. What we see is a chillingly honest portrayal of sexual obsession, and our potential for destruction: lives damaged, or soon to be so. Her work is strongly identified with both the True Life Stories and Inspirational Memoirs genres, and she has also written a parenting guide to bringing up children, Happy Kids, and a novel, The Girl in the Mirror, based on a true story.When Jodie arrived, Cathy had no idea what lay beneath Jodie's shocking behaviour, which included smearing faces all over the house, erupting into violent rages and even cutting herself.
