Good Points
ALL OF IT!!!

General Comments
I absolutely love this book......i have had a copy of Sandra Gregory's, "Forget You Had a Daughter" for 4 years now and i have read it many times! I love, and was a little surprised at how honest i thought Sandra Gregory was from the first page.....and also how she kept her honesty through out her time...in all prisons.

I do think it was disgusting how they sent Gregory to Durham but to the same wing as all these evil people??? i am surprised how the sentence in Thailand for what she did was initially death then life then 25 years i think the Thai law is a mockery it seems they are so powerful and it depends on their moods what sentence you may get! In england some people have been sentenced to less years than 25 for something much worse!! i also found it disgusting that Robert got a fine once he had been found out...i dont understand these laws at all! I do think when i read the book sometimes what i was doing at some of these points as when she was experiencing Durham prison in 1999 i was turning 10 and hadnt a care in the world....things of the book make me wonder how i would have coped and i actually dont think i would have been as brave as Sandra was.....the things she knew about people..people she mixed with spoke to saw day in day out its just something i see on tv about convicts..also the things she saw and how after a while it doesnt seem as shocking anymore like no one cares...

Overall i think that Sandra Gregory was and is an inspiration..... i am, as wierd as this sounds, proud to own this book...as it takes you to into her shoes i imagine seeing everything she saw when i read it everything she ate touched it was like i was there....i am thankfully not and never will be! this book shows to you how difficult it can be not just for men but for women in prisons.....people sometimes argue that male prisons are horrific because they get raped and women cant rape eachother so it cant be as bad as that....but i beg to differ after reading what people do if they know someone is smuggling drugs.....i am in awe of Sandra Gregory not for what she been through but that she has come out of....she survived the life of a prisoner for a small crime and i think that this book is is more of a bible to me as i know that if i need help i should always just ask and not think that i can do it alone.......A******************** a book that will be passed down! a rule book instead of a story....
