    One thought on “A Stolen Childhood: A dark past, a terrible secret, a girl without a future

    1. Daisy

      Quality Rating: Three StarsEnjoyment Rating: Three StarsThank you to Harper Collins for providing me with this copy to review.Having never read a memoir before, A Stolen Childhood was a new experience for me - one I'm not entirely sure if I liked to not. To be honest, the real world within the pages of a book isn't for me, however I do feel like Watson's book has something to say: she addresses something many people are too scared to, and in as brutally honest a way as a memoir. (Though there we [...]

    2. Catherine

      This was a good book.Bestselling author and teacher Casey Watson shares the horrifying true story of Kiera Bentley, a 12-year-old girl with a deeply shocking secret she’s too young to even understand.When Casey first meets Kiera, a small slight girl who’s just lashed out at a fellow pupil in assembly, she immediately senses something’s wrong. Something in Kiera’s eyes alerts Casey that this is an “old head on young shoulders”, and with Kiera’s constant tiredness and self-soothing h [...]

    3. Joanne

      Since i first started with Watson's memoirs and her experience as a special needs teacher and foster care parent, i have not missed any of her single word. however, i'm disappointed with her latest book, A stolen childhood. I found that the story was a big slow to start with, especially the first 100 pages. But at the same time, it is a good read, and definitely a book that will make you ponder about abusive parents, and what the child is thinking, and behaving under such abuse.

    4. Adeline Alexandra

      I definitely appreciate the effort that Watson invested in the development of Kiera through her interaction with her classmates and the air of mystique embodied by her. It made Kiera extremely compelling. However, I was not a form of Watson's writing style in the earlier half of the novel. The tone felt a tad bit too detached for my liking (though I don't know if that was intentional, to parallel to the sense if detachment between the teacher's expectation and the harsh reality- that is, Kiera's [...]

    5. Christi Wilson

      Quick read, but nicely told about children that need support from an adult who has insights beyond the classroom.

    6. Vanessa Kefauver

      Good book, was kind of long getting into meat of story line. Thought she was like Kathy Glass. which she kind of is.

    7. Nada

      I was so happy to finish this book. It felt like a weight on my shoulders. I disliked both the plot and characters. There was nothing interesting to be read.

    8. Lynley

      This book reminded me of the short time I spent supply teaching in England. But even before that, I taught (comparatively briefly) in a low SES school, and what I found difficult about this book was Casey's incredulity. The problem, of course, with turning this real life horror story into a book is that the title partly gives it away. The reader is able to predict what's happening seemingly before Casey does. As a narrative this is its failing, because the teacher seems a little slow on the upta [...]

    9. Claire Thake

      Generally I really enjoy these types of books. I love the fact that they are true to life and are hard hitting and this book was no exception to that. In A Stolen Childhood we meet the usual small group of troubled kids, with troubled home lifes, but this book mainly follows the life of 12 year old Kiera.I spent most of the book just wanting to reach into the pages and to give Kiera a hug! The poor girl went through so much in her little life but what happened towards the end floored me and had [...]

    10. Tony

      This book is a perfect example of adult superiority complex. Adults love lording it over kids and this is no exception. Casey had no business involving social services. It's only because the girl was under age. Had she been 18+, things wouldn've been different. Casey just couldn't leave it the fuck alone but she should have. The girl was in no danger and the fact that she's 12 has nothing to do with anything. It's nobody's business if the mother wanted to sell herself. Adults need to get off the [...]

    11. Codi Gary

      A truly heartbreaking story.The book was well written and heartbreaking, but I did feel it dragged in places and that the addition of the other children's stories was a big part of that. I would have liked the book to have really focused on Kiera and her alone, but otherwise, I will be looking for more from this author

    12. Sandra Black

      Out of the frying pan and into the fireThis book was a real example of this phrase. I enjoyed it and it is a good example of how kids can really be made to believe their life is better when it really isn't.

    13. Katie Hughes

      Good readGood read if you like authors like Cathy Glass, then Casey Watson is one to try. Enjoyable and highlights teenage behaviour when there's something drastically wrong at home.

    14. Rebecca

      Nothing spectacular. I did like this though. Although I felt like some parts were like lecture notes and that I was getting taught facts rather than being described a story. Interesting, but for someone who is familiar with the topics discussed the education was repetitive.

    15. Kara Ayres

      This book is longer than it needs to be to get the story across. Sorry Casey Watson I don't need to know that you are addicted to coffee, fixated on cleaning or love biscuits. Overall I enjoyed the book just with 5 less chapters it would have been a bit pacier.

    16. Dionna Tan

      I like how casey way of working with children, and i love granny giles , shes like the meaning of girl power. Feel really sorry for keira , poor girl

    17. Sara Robbins

      Capturing readWith the help and support a young child was rescued from years of abuse and was captured brilliantly in this book.

    18. Kellie Mackrell

      Another book that takes a lot of time to gauge my interest but once I do I find it quite appealing despite the sadness of the topic.

    19. Vicky Herbert

      A harrowing read made all the more devastating by the authors pragmatic style of writing. Sat and read in one sitting. Easy 5 ⭐️
