A memoir of the Cleveland kidnapping

Michelle Knight was just 21 when she was kidnapped by Ariel Castro. Held captive for eleven years in Cleveland, she finally made her escape in 2013. In Finding Me, MIchelle tells the story of her early life, her abduction and the present day. She reveals new details about her year alone in captivity as Castro's first victim, as well as her escape, and draws upon the thoughts and prayers that helped her to survive an unthinkable situation. She was the woman no one was looking for, the victim entirely forgotten, but Michelle Knight is now an inspiration to the world.

            This was a very interesting read from probably one of the strongest young women you would find. I admire her ability to just move on after finding an inner strength that is rare.

                    Great book. Absolutely horrific what Michelle went through, but her strength was astounding. Michelle went in to great detail of her years of torture and was so brave to share her story. Not only did she go in to detail about her traumatising experience in the hands of that monster, she also spoke about life before and after, which gave an insight to a life that I had no idea she lived beforehand, and gave a great picture of her courage and mindset afterwards, which was heartwarming but on the other hand heartbreaking. Very descriptive, well written and easy to read. I read the book in 3 days - I literally couldn't put it down!
