Shelley MacKenney is an amazing woman. After suffering a breakdown she runs away from her life in London to Birmingham.

I was leant this by a friend so sort of knew what to expect before I read it. I still couldn't read it at night because I found it so depressing in parts. As a result it took me a bit longer to read which I think gave me longer to consider it.What this young women has gone through is shocking but all the more shocking is the blase attitude members of the support staff etc had to the men hanging around the shelters etc. truly terrifying and an utterly compelling read.
