Purchased on Mighty Ape

That was what it was like – I stayed up till 2am most nights that I had this book – because I couldn't put it down.

Chapter to Chapter Celine's life just seems to attract more and more battles, more and more heartache and pain, rejection and hurt, obstacles and setbacks. You think her life is at it's peak of pain – and BAM, the next chapter whacks some other horrible thing into her life.

This book blew my mind…in the last handful of chapters I was sobbing – literally....­.I just wanted to hug her and never let go with the unbelievable life she has lived – she is one incredibly strong aMAZING woman.

I definitely recommend this book – it is the story of a woman with all the YUCK life can think up – thrown in her face and the decisions she is forced to constantly make, from when she started talking to a 50ish year old woman. Incredible!

Her bones were broken, her nose was crushed and she ate candle wax to stay alive. eline was finally rescued and sent to an industrial school, where she picked up the pieces of her shattered life. She also began the search for her parents. But what she found gave her battered survival instincts the hardest knock of all ... ull of the most heartbreaking tragedy but ultimately survival and hope, No One Wants You is a remarkably honest and compelling memoir of a woman triumphing over her most brutal past.
