The name Ian Huntley is one synonymous with pure evil.
Convicted of one of the most horrific and baffling crimes ever witnessed by the nation - the brutal murders of Holly Wells and Jessica Chapman - it was only after his conviction that the horrific nature of this man's predatory past became apparent.
It was only when it was too late that many girls and women stepped forward to reveal that they, too, had been victims of this terrifying man.One such woman is Hailey Giblin, who was just eleven years old when she had the tragic misfortune of encountering Huntley.
Having persuaded young Hailey to go for a walk with him, he then brutally assaulted her and threatened to kill her if she told anyone what had happened.
When the truth eventually came out, Huntley was questioned but released without charge.The attack, and the subsequent release of Huntley, left deep scars on Hailey and in desperation she turned to drugs to numb the pain.
The ramifications of the failure to stop this sexual predator have been devastating, both for Hailey herself and on a larger scale. When Hailey heard that the Soham caretaker had been arrested for the murders of Holly and Jessica, her nightmare at his hands came flooding back to her.In this heart-rending book, Hailey tells her own story in her own words.
She describes the terror she felt during and after the attack, and how she bravely struggled to come to terms with what had happened to her.This is the story of a girl who, despite having been robbed of her childhood innocence, eventually managed to rebuild her life.
Now, with a blossoming career in modelling, Hailey is moving on.
With Huntley finally admitting the crimes he committed against her, she will now be able to leave the past where it belongs.
But she will never forget...
