‘Three Girls’ is just the tip of the iceberg

Five years ago I wrote a book called Stolen Girl.

A year later, in January 2013, it was published. The book created a backlash because it was one of the first to be written about the abuse of a white girl by an Asian (mainly Pakistani) grooming gang. I’d been approached to write it by a London publisher.

Then aged 19, Katie (not her real name) had real issues with trust. She’d already tried to work with two other writers before I met her, but they’d stepped down because she could barely speak about what had happened to her.

  1. The last line of this story is wrong ! The (mainly) Pakistani groomers are NOT paedophiles – they are rapists and pimps and human traffickers of underage girls for sex and money ! Nothing more, nothing less !
    Paedophilia is a well documented psychiatric disorder which simply does not fit in with these men who are, simply vile “users and abusers” of vulnerable youngsters who are desperate to feel “loved ” and “special” and are “easy meat” for these disgusting people ! Please stop referring to them as paedophiles you people of the media – do some research before putting pen to paper !!


  2. Xinsider I totally agree with you it is totally misleading to call,them a paedophile gang, it also lets the police, the social services the children services and the disgusting cover up by the councillors.
