9780007266647: Nowhere to Run: Where do you go when there's nowhere left to hide?

How can you forget your past when it keeps coming back to haunt you? Judy Westwater, the Sunday Times bestselling author of Street Kid, was determined to turn her back on her cruel and violent childhood. She didn't stand a chance. All too soon hope turned to fear and she knew she'd have to run again.

Judy was only 11 years old when she was forced to live on the streets. Beaten, half-starved and horrifically abused, she finally escaped to a life in the circus and fell in love with one of the circus hands. But the charming man who seemed so perfect had a dark and sinister side. If she wanted to survive she had to get away.

Judy fled to South Africa, taking with her her two young children. But the streets of South Africa were just as cruel. One day a man took her five-year-old daughter and her violent past was replayed in front of her eyes.

Judy's incredible story of courage and determination will inspire as it will amaze.

Review:

‘If Judy’s story doesn’t become a book and a film, I’ll be amazed.’ John Peel

About the Author:

After a tormented childhood, much of which she lived as a feral child, Judy Westwater was determined to make her life meaningful. Over the past ten years, she has set up seven day centres for children in the violent townships of South Africa and lectured to many thousands across the UK to raise funds for her work. Her childhood story, was the subject of one of the late John Peel’s most moving interviews on BBC Radio 4’s ‘Home Truths’. ITV’s This Morning followed Judy out to South Africa to witness firsthand her incredible work, recording an extremely moving mini documentary that also features where she was homeless as a child.
