**THE TRUE STORY BEHIND THE CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED BBC DRAMA ‘THREE GIRLS’ **

What do they find attractive about me? An underage girl who just lies there, sobbing, looking up at them...as they come to me one by one.

This is the shocking true story of how a young girl from Rochdale came to be Girl A – the key witness in the trial of Britain’s most notorious child sex ring.

Girl A was just 14 when she was groomed by a group of nine Asian men. After being lured into their circle with free gifts, she was plied with alcohol and systematically abused. She was just one of up to fifty girls to be 'passed around' by the gang. The girls were all under-16 and forced to have sex with as many as twenty men in one night.

When details emerged a nation was outraged and asked how these sickening events came to pass. And now, the girl at the very centre of the storm reveals the heartbreaking truth.

    A difficult book to put a suitable title too given its content. An excellent read, despite being about the horrific circumstances a young girl had to suffer. Definitely a read to understand the true happenings of the scandal. Definitely an eye opener

    Honest and brutal account of how our system let down these girls for fear of believing these things could happen in this country and for fear of offending an ever growing community! Girl A tells her story with such harrowing truth and bares all, making us all see and realise the horrors that await young children in this society! Hopefully the powers in charge actually see what they need to do to improve and stop this from happening again!

    I had read a book a few years ago which was another girls story on this subject and this one is just a horrific. Hannah should be proud that she has survived this. There is also a 3 part drama called 'three girls' which features some of Hannah's story. It's just unbelievable that this could happen and that the police and social services stood by and let this happen. I hope you find the happiness you deserve Hannah.

    This story is told so well. It really does illustrate the horrendous behaviour of those men. It's hard to imagine they still operate and will be getting away with the abuse. God bless all the victims. Well done to Girl A for your strength and determination to keep going and I wish you all the best.
  • What a read!!!

    This book had me hooked, I almost cried for "Hannah" when these men or should I say animals were brought to justice. It's almost scary when a system that is put in place to protect people, fails them so horrifically. A real eye opener.

    Couldn't put this book down, I'd heard on the media about the story and wanted to read the full story, what a brave set of women you are. what an utterly disgusting set of dipraved humans who did this to the poor girls

    Couldn't put this down! Read it in just two days. This book may not be for everybody but I enjoyed it and it really touched me. I am from the area mentioned and am a similar age to her so it hit me like a tonne of bricks. Hope she finds happiness for her and her little girl. Very good read.
  • Decent read

    This book isn't as good as I thought it would be but worth a read if you're interested
  • A harrowing account of a terrible crime

    I bought this book at the start of my night shift and I did not stop reading until I had finished it. It's a truly harrowing account of a vulnerable girl who was completely let down by the police, social services and even her own parents to some extent. I see many horrible things in my profession, but at points in this book even I had to suppress a tear. Hannah, I must say, is an incredibly strong woman, and I commend her courage and bravery not only for the ordeal itself, but for writing this book and giving a hard-hitting inside into an issue that - as a society - we often think only happens in far away countries.
