    bestfriend

    i have known julie for the past 15 years, she has been my closest friend and confident. it is hurtful to hear these people make up such terrible lies. im disgusted that these people are allowed to behave like this in public. julie is a hard working, caring person who has suffered tremendously due to certain individuals. julie will not let these people bring her down. I am extremley proud of her, it took a lot of courage to write this honest and truthful account of her life. TRUTH hurts only those who lie....

    thanks

    all these bad reviews just shows that certain people are ashamed of the truth or maybe they are just in denial. anyway it is helping the book generate more interest so feel free to carry on but just remember the freedom of information act will tell if it lies or the truth !!!!!!!!!!!!

    Authors brother and character (Daniel)

    My Sister has been through alot and for her to write this book must have took some courage. As for people calling it lies!!! I was the character Daniel and i have been through it all with her. After reading the book it answered alot of questions for me as I was only very little at the time. So please ignore these negative nasty critics who weren't there and cant comment.

    Well done on the book Julie its a fantastic read. Look forward to reading your next release

    cant wait to grow older

    i have just read this book as I am a childhood friend of Julie's ... I have to say what a load of rubbish. Julie was never abused by others maybe it could be argued that she abused her self. Julie very easily slipt into bed with anyone around and it was not always a bed she offered herself on!!!!
