Missing

by Shelley MacKenney

Biography / Autobiography eBooks of the Month

Missing Synopsis

Missing is Shelley MacKenney's remarkable story of life as a 'missing person'. An inspirational tale of her journey through extreme personal crisis. You can run, but you can't hide from yourself. Abandoned by her mother as a young child and with a father constantly on the run, Shelley's life was never normal. Her family's involvement with South London's criminal underworld left her isolated, vulnerable and lonely. Falling deeper and deeper into depression and despair - she snapped. Shelley got on the first coach out of London with only the clothes she stood up in and GBP30 in her pocket. She didn't care where she was going, as long as she could disappear completely from her oppressive life. For years, she lived anonymously in refuges, hostels and on the streets. It would take something remarkable to bring her back to the real world. Shelley now lives in Birmingham with her grandmother Eileen, author of Borstal Girl, and her beautiful daughter Alyssia.
