Description - No One Wants You by Celine Roberts

Given away by her mother at five months old, raped on the day of her first communion at age seven - when Celine Roberts was told 'No one wants you', she believed it. Illegitimate and unwanted, Celine was forced by her foster mother into prostitution. Her bones were broken, her nose was crushed and she ate candle wax to stay alive. Celine was finally rescued and sent to an industrial school, where she picked up the pieces of her shattered life. She also began the search for her parents. But what she found gave her battered survival instincts the hardest knock of all...Full of the most heartbreaking tragedy but ultimately survival and hope, "No One Wants You" is the remarkably honest and compelling memoir of a woman triumphing over her brutal past.
