Betrayed: The heartbreaking true story of a struggle to escape a cruel life defined by family honour
By Rosie Lewis
In the much-anticipated follow-up to Sunday Times bestseller Trapped, foster carer Rosie Lewis tells the heartbreaking true story of 13-year-old Zadie.
When the young teenage girl runs away from home and is discovered hiding on the city streets by the police, it is clear that all is not as it should be.Tweet
I found this book entirely believable. It is a window onto the problems of abused, neglected children and their foster carers. The subject was sensitively dealt with yet the problems, both for the foster carers and the children in their care were immense. It also brought home to me the difficulties we as a society have in understanding and coping with the different culture and beliefs of our neighbours that may be very different from our own.
