Product Description

Roxy was shaking with fear. She drew in a deep breath. She would not let her fear take over. She couldn’t. She had too much to lose. She had to be strong, to be brave. For once in her life she had to think of someone other than herself.

Roxy is wild and uncontrollable. She hates her parents and her goody-two-shoes sister. Then, on the night of the party, where she lets that boy kiss her, and more, Roxy gets pregnant. Refusing to tell her family, she runs away to London – and there she is found by Mr and Mrs Dyce. Understanding and sympathetic, they promise her a way out of her troubles. They take her to a comfortable place, along with other pregnant girls, and look after her and her baby. Roxy can’t believe her luck – until she realises the hideous truth about the outwardly genial Dyces. They are ‘farming’ the babies in a truly horrible way, selling the baby organs. There is only one dramatic way out for Roxy – and it’s dangerous. But she is dealing with dangerous people, and she has her baby to look after. A gripping and completely compelling story based on true events.
