Book review: Snatched, by Elizabeth Harper

I just finished another amazing memoir. This one is really heartbreaking.


Groomed and procured by a woman, raped by several men and labelled ‘one of the most abused girl in Rotherham’, now Elizabeth Harper is fighting for answers as to why so many people paid to protect our children simply turned a blind eye.

Elizabeth not only survived four years of relentless abuse, she helped blow the lid off the Rotherham grooming scandal—one of the largest child sexual exploitation cover-ups this country has ever seen.

Now, for the first time, she tells her story in full.

This book is so sad, but also so inspirational.

It is a moving account of one girl’s survival after being groomed by a woman that she met at a bus stop and then trafficked to Asian and pakistani men.

She is a survivor of a child abuse scandal in the UK in a place called rotherham, where gangs of Asian men sexually abused children for years.

She helped to blow the lid off this scandal, and bring some of these men to justice.

I won’t lie, this is a tough read. It goes into a lot of detail about the abuse she suffered at the hands of the woman who groomed her and the men who abused her.

Ultimately though the book ends well, and its full of hope.

I did enjoy it despite its hard subject matter.

You can get it on amazon or from audible.
