The number one international bestseller. The first book to tell what really happened in the so-called house of horrors.

In 2002 Michelle Knight was kidnapped by a Cleveland bus driver named Ariel Castro. For over a decade she endured unimaginable torture at the hands of her abductor. In 2003 Amanda Berry joined her in captivity followed by Gina DeJesus in 2004. their escape in 2013 made headlines around the world as people struggled to comprehend how three young women could remain imprisoned in a suburban house with nobody knowing.

Michelle Knight had already endured years of abuse, estrangement from her own family and lost custody of her son when she was caught by Castro. Local police, believing she had run away removed her from the missing person's list 15 months after she vanished. Castro would torment her with these facts, reminding her that no-one cared. But Michelle would not be broken.

Shocking, heart-breaking and ultimately triumphant, Michelle's tale is one of survival as she becomes a voice for the voiceless and a powerful symbol of hope for the thousands of children and young adults who go missing every year.

Now fully updated, with a new cover and new afterword.

'Monsters might not deserve names, but victims do deserve voices. Ariel Castro tried to tell this woman that she didn't have one. Finding Me proves him wrong' - the Independent UK

    Michelle you are amazing ! Your book has taught me to stay strong and to hold my head up high not matter what circumstance I'm held up in. You are truly Gods gift to earth. May God bless you and continue to stay strong. The world needs more people like you. And for you Ariel Castro - may you rot in hell you dirty pig. You are not human and you deserve to suffer in hell.

    It must have been very hard for Michelle to write this book about the monster who stole so much of her life.I enjoyed this book more than the Amanda Berry Gina DeJesus version.

    I could hardly put the book down. What the girls went through is one of the most horrific stories I have read. I sincerely hope Michelle (and also the other girls) find peace and happiness which they truly deserve. LJ from Australia.
