Item description for No One Wants You: A Memoir of a Child Forced into Prostitution by Celine Roberts...
The first rape was at age 7, in her communion dress. The next was two months later.Then Celine was considered initiated into the ways of sex.
Illegitimate and unwanted, she was now ready to be a professional prostitute - with her foster mother as her pimp.
Her bones were broken, her nose was broken, she ate wax candles in the church to stay alive - she just thought she was being punished.
After six long years 13-year-old Celine was finally rescued and sent to an Industrial School. She tried to pick up the pieces of her shattered life and only a few years later started training to be a nurse. She also began the search for her parents.
But her battered survival instincts could barely sustain the shock that came with that knowledge.

Reviews - What do customers think about No One Wants You: A Memoir of a Child Forced into Prostitution?
An admirable story of courage Apr 7, 2008
I have nothing but admiration for Celine's courage, tenacity and integrity. She has had the courage to tell her story and persevere through life-difficulties to which many of us would have succumbed. She suffered horribly at the hands of those who should have protected and loved her, but she never waivered in knowing what was good and right and in creating her own loving family.
I hope this book inspires others to shine the light in those dark corners and to have the courage to create a positive life of own's own.
This edition of the book does contain some imperfections, but so what. Blame the editors and not the writer. The editors should have done a better job - editing their writers' work IS their job! But, apparently, the second edition of this book has been better edited (it's found on this site UK).
