‘Help me, I’m Amanda Berry… I’ve been kidnapped, and I’ve been missing for ten years.’
When Amanda Berry fled from a house in Cleveland, a horrifying story rapidly unfolded. School bus driver Ariel Castro had separately lured Berry and two other young women, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight, to his home, where he trapped them and kept them chained. In the decade that followed, the girls were frequently raped, psychologically abused and threatened with death if they attempted to escape. Years after she was taken, Amanda had a daughter by their captor, a child she bravely raised as normally as possible under impossible conditions.
Drawing on recollections and Amanda’s secret diary, Gina and Amanda describe the unimaginable torment they endured and reveal the full story behind the headlines – including details never previously released. Harrowing yet inspiring, this is a memoir of survival and courage you will never forget.
