Shy Keenan was not meant to survive her childhood. Her mother beat her so severely that she was deaf and nearly blind by her first day in school. Her stepsister thought nothing of pouring boiling water over her, and virtually every day she was raped by her stepfather. At age 10 she was sold to a gang of dockworkers, viciously attacked, and left for dead in a field with a fractured skull. Today, Shy is an internationally respected advocate in the fight for justice for victims of child sexual abuse. Six years ago, her testimony secured the imprisonment of her stepfather and his associates for a catalogue of crimes against children. This success was achieved only after a journey through extensive psychiatric care, prison, and near-suicide. Shy’s experiences expose the extreme wickedness of which some are capable, but also tell a story of hope, strength, and courage.

Shy Keenan founded Phoenix Survivors, an organization that campaigns for justice on behalf of victims of sexual abuse and works to rescue children at risk.

  • gret book

    horrifying that this even happened. I commend the girl for "breaking free" from this tragedy, but where was help?? How could any sane human think a child of 6 or 7 or 5 could be making sexual advances... Where where the authorities!! IT sickens me, but Shy was and is a brave woman to overcome all this. Kudos to her!

  • Shocking

    I could not believe the things that happened to this poor child. Made me think of all the other children in this world who are abused and used. It is amazing how she could pull herself together, at the end of the book, and help others.
