Sue Baker's view...

Lara McDonnell was one of the young girls involved in the Oxford Child Abuse Scandal that ran from 2004-2012. With 7 men now in jail for long prison terms the case might be thought to have ended – but not for the victims. Victims like Lara who was both physically and mentally abused take years to break free of the stigma but the mental scars live on. Aged just 13 when the abuse started she chronicles the case from the view of the victim.

Synopsis

Girl for Sale The Shocking True Story from the Girl Trafficked and Abused by Oxford's Evil Sex Ring by

At the vulnerable age of 13, Lara McDonnell was picked out by a gang of men who befriended her, showered her with attention and gained her trust. Manipulated and groomed, her life quickly spiralled out of control as the men trafficked her around the country, deliberately keeping her compliant with drink and drugs. Deeply disturbed, and frightened about what the gang would do to her if she tried to break free, it would take over 4 years for Lara to find the strength to fight back, flee Oxford and escape her nightmare. This is her heartbreaking story.

About the Author

Following Lara's horrifying ordeal, she found the strength to become a key witness in the trial of Britain's most evil sex ring and has since rebuilt her life with her son and adoptive mother.
