Jaycee Dugard To Publish Her Memoir — Do You Want To Read Her Heartbreaking Story?

Tue, September 28, 2010 11:57am EDT by 6 Comments

The woman who lived through a terrifying abduction and 18 years of captivity is telling her chilling tale!

It’s every parent’s worst nightmare — your child being abducted and having no idea where they are! Unlike many abducted children, Jaycee Dugard lived to tell the horrible tale firsthand, and now, she’s telling her story in a memoir to be published by Simon and Schuster.

The book will cover Jaycee’s story, from when she was abducted in 1991 to her present-day life as a 30-year-old mother of two daughters who were fathered by her abductor, Phillip Garrido, whose home she lived behind in a makeshift house during her captivity.

Can You Believe The Woman Who Helped Keep Jaycee Dugard Prisoner For 18 Years Is Crying Because Jaycee Hasn’t Visited Her In Jail?

“When I read the pages, I was moved and inspired by the raw power of Jaycee Dugard’s voice, her strength, and her resilience,” Simon and Schuster head Jonathan Karp said.

Although the financial details of her book deal were not disclosed, Jaycee was awarded $20 million by California legislators for psychological, physical, and emotional damages.

I am going to buy this book. I have my own daughter and i cannot imagine my life with out her. She is my breath i breathe every morning and every night. She is my Guide, without her i am nothing. She is everything a mother can ask for. So i cannot imagine what it was like for her parents to go on without their Daughter. I am glad however that she is home with her family now and trying to live a normal life with them again. I am Happy that she was a lucky child who actually made it out. I feel sorry for the children or missing who never come back and i feel sorry for their families that never get to see their children again. If you ask me i think that the death penelty is a good punishment for the other people who kidnapped her and held her capitive .. Keep holding strong, and enjoy the life you have with your family. You missed to many years without them. <3 Congradulations on your Return home .. and to the Abducters i hope you suffer when you get that penelty death. you made that poor girl suffer now its your turn. Its amazing how god works!

Seriously why should I or the rest of the world keep spending money to get someone richer you know if even that 20 mill had been put to prevent abductions or help the homeless or people that struggle on a daily basis to survive but no people that auctually have their children abducted and murdered wheres their 20 mill im itred of a world where people are not treated equally weither by sex race religion or even sexual orientation enough is enough

She deserves more, all victims should get money from the abusers/law that fails them when things like this happen. The only ones who suffer are the victims, the accusers don’t have to live daily with what they’ve done, if they felt bad they never would have done it. So many problems come with sexual abuse in general. Anxiety, eating disorders, problems with intimacy, night terrors, depression, repression, re-experiencing when confronted with a trigger, social problems. Fears (logical and illogical), panic attacks, sleeping problems, irritability, outbursts of anger and sudden shock reactions when being touched. Little confidence, and self-respect and respect for one’s own body may change. Behavior that harms the body: addiction to alcohol and other substances, excessive work or sports, depression, self-destruction and prostitution along with so many more. Do you think the abusers walk around with these feelings and problems because of what they did to someone else? The answer is no. As someone who actually experienced sexual abuse, I can tell you none of that is being dramatic. She was held since she was 11, how would she be expected to raise her children well and make money steadily with no real social experience, no work experience, and mounting therapy/medical bills no doubt right from the start. Imagine 20 years of sexual abuse, and being forced to bear the child of your abuser with no end in sight, with someone so close you can almost reach out, but you can’t because you’re scared, frozen, beat down, unable to know what’s true anymore, not being able to doubt they’d kill you, and anyone you love because you’ve seen what they can do. I have no idea how she made it. Don’t try and play the race card, it’s not about that. She deserves so much more.
