Domestic Detention: Rodney Pemberton

Although, this is not a popular book, this first-time author from the Caribbean is a master at story telling. Hence, it’s the reason this book was dubbed “best Novelty”. A page turner that engrosses you from the very first page.

Secluded on a farmhouse for year, they were very much afraid to leave. Their only means of survival came from the bond they created until they were able to build the courage to escape. This book will leave you pondering with your jaws drop.


THE LOST GIRLS: JOHN GLATT

You’d have to be residing under a rock if you’ve never heard of this story. Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight all made headlines everywhere as their story unfolded in the media. Three girls who were kidnapped and repeatedly rape while imprisoned by a friendly, smiling Ariel Castro, a man who was a fiend of one of the girl’s parents. For over a decade, these innocent girls were just feet away from neighbors, and inches away from visiting guests who were unaware of their presence. This book is emotional disturbing, and may leave you horrified.

She was trapped and abuse for over twenty-four years in a windowless cellar. A hideous crime that will leave you gasping, and asking “how could this happened for so many years. A terrifying read that could be quite disturbing. This one is not for the faint hearted, and for those who are prone to nightmares.


THE HOUSE FROM HELL: GENOVEVO ORTIZ

A dark look into the story of Gertrude Baniszewski, a monster who tortured and gruesomely mutilated teenager, Slyvia Likens who was in her care. A crime that many though could have been prevented by many. This book is horrific, gut wrenching and heart-broken at the same time. Another history of brutal child abuse. It’s something no child should ever experience. Perhaps, reminds you a bit of “the girl next door.” This is another book that is not for the faint hearted.


THE GIRL IN THE LEAVES: ROBERT SCOTT

Four Ohio girls who vanished without a trace, including one who went through the gates of hell by her biological father and his wife. As the search continues, evidence tricked to a man in the neighborhood, who many considered to be eccentric. In my opinion, quite concisely and grabs your attention from the start.


THE YEAR WE DISAPPEARED: CYLIN BUSBY

Eight years old at the time, but her recollection is quite retentive. It’s an interesting read, but could be painful to anyone, knowing that the person who sworn to serve and to protect no longer can after they were shot by an ex-con who believes to have ties to a mob. An unfortunate tragedy that formed a much stronger family bond. A tragedy each person handled differently, but the pain they endured is something I’ll never wish on my worst enemy. Finding themselves under a 24-hour escort protection still couldn’t bring them the comfort they badly needed. Their only resolution was to return to the only life they knew.


DON’T TELL MUMMY: TONI MAGUIRE

Gripping and engaging, but heart wrenching and pitiful. The sad story of a six-year-old girl who was afraid of not being loved by anyone after her father made her an improper advance. It was a secret she kept for years until she finally built up enough encourage to tell her mother. At fourteen, she became pregnant by her father, but was told to take a late abortion that almost ended her life. She then found herself in an unfortunate world of her own.
