Not a Proper Child
by Nicky Nicholls and Elizabeth Sheppard
Pub Date 06 Sep 2018
I am reviewing a copy of Not A Proper Child through Mirror Books and Netgalley:
As a newborn Nicky was left in a box outside of Stokes City Football Ground, her Grandparents found her and took her into their home, but what she would find in that home was far from love! Her Mom takes her from time to time but even she beats her. Her Grandfather and her Uncle sexually assault her.
Nicky’s life was marred by tragedy and abuse, leaving her more and more afraid as the abuse escalated and her dreams of a happy home were shattered again and again.
Because of her broken.life, Nicky turned to alcohol becoming a homeless alcoholic, she ended up in prison in 1965 and witnessed the arrival of Moors Murderer Myra Hindley, she decided then to move beyond her past and built a better life for her.
I give Not A Proper Child five out of five stars!
