Synopsis

Skank by Marni Mulholland

'How does it start? A look, a smile, a laugh, a hug, a play, a game. A cuddle, a fumble, a touch.' Marni thought she'd found a friend in her social worker, Matthew. But he groomed her from the moment she entered the children's home. A year later their 'relationship' crossed boundaries no child should know exist. As Matthew led Marni down the path of depravity, she grew up not knowing how to survive as a normal girl. It was a short step from Matthew's abuse to prostitution. Marni even thought - at first - she was enjoying it. But this girl was a fighter. She may have hit rock bottom, but there came a day when Marni decided that the past was not going to determine her future. Shocking and powerful, brave and inspiring, Marni Muholland's memoir reveals the full truth about grooming and its aftermath.
