Ending
Not for the faint of heart, by the by. Kerry, 10, is the only child of dad and mom, who are separated and not at all civil; she lives with mom. Mom's also lives with boyfriend Graham. Dad pimps her out when he needs money to pay his bills; he also will let his pals abuse her when they're playing cards. Graham and mom are also sexually abusing her, and after mom beats her up, the doctor comments on a lot of bleeding; mom confides in Graham she thinks Kerry recently had a miscarriage. Mom had moved her to a new school when she thinks others may suspect something is up, but there one of her teachers Paul, who notices her behavior is unusual, and suggests (indirectly) she call a child advocacy number; she does, and begins to chat with them. Paul discovers her later along slitting her wrists in a school (again), and child services gets involved. She gives a statement to them, flips out during a physical exam, and is put into a foster home. Back at school, she tells the teacher Graham is going to be arrested, and she reports things are getting better... but the prosecutor declines to press charges; she trashes her room in foster care, and goes to a group home, where another girl lures her into one of the local pimp Mick's grasp (plying them with cigarettes, candy, alcohol and the like); he starts pimping her out with four johns on her first day. She shows up at Paul's home, and chats with child services trying to get her into a better home (soon after, one of the counselors at her current place rapes her). After seeing Paul with his girlfriend, Kerry starts trolling for johns at the truck stop to pay for her to go to the home Paul suggested. She goes to the other home, tries to pay her way, and they welcome her. There, she settles in, and really breaks down and cries for the first time. In end notes, we're told after 12 days, Kerry was able to speak about what had happened to her. No one has ever been charged with the dozens of crimes committed against her, and in Britain, only a tiny fraction of cases are prosecuted. Kerry ends up graduating and goes to study at university.
