Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: "Judy was three years old when her con-man father snatched her from her mother. Kept like a dog in his backyard, she ate from bins to stay alive. Judy was then taken to South Africa, where her father and his girlfriend fled to escape the authorities - and where her life became unimaginably appalling. Beaten, treated as a slave and subjected to horrifying mental cruelty, escape was her only option. But living on the streets was just as dangerous. Through sheer determination she survived. This is her amazing story." --provided by the publisher.
