A Girl Raised By Wolves

In the late 1970’s, in a gritty N.J. town, an adolescent girl is unwittingly handed a one-way ticket by her mother to allegedly “visit” her estranged father in Florida. Young and vulnerable, Lockey Maisonnueve has no idea she is being abandoned and sent to live with a vile and dangerous pedophile who would spend the next several years violently raping, abusing and mercilessly selling his daughter’s body into childhood prostitution to other adult men. After being rescued by her naive, but well-intentioned, grandparents, her troubled life is further devastated by cancer and ravaged by the subsequent brutal murder of her mother, in which Lockey is briefly considered a suspect. “A Girl Raised by Wolves’ is the inspirational memoir of a survivor of the darkest circumstances one can endure in a single lifetime and still emerge with a sense of humor and to defiantly proclaim “they didn’t break me!”

Advance praise for “A Girl Raised by Wolves”— “In her debut memoir, Lockey Maisonneuve takes readers into the darkest of dark nights-sharing a childhood fraught with neglect, abuse, rape, abandonment, rage and hatred. Writing with grit, vulnerability and determination she offers readers a bold, uncensored narrative that screams “I will not surrender”. Maisonneuve is a modern-day heroine who remains standing under unimaginable circumstances. She will take your breath away, return it so you can exhale momentarily, and then grab it back. There’s more to her story. To her credit, she’s a merchant of hope-the woman who outsmarts her destiny, captivates the heart and illuminates our outlook. Every woman should read A Girl Raised by Wolves, a book about survival, resilience and the raod to self-return.” Armen Bacon, author of Griefland: An intimate Portrait of Love, Loss and Unlikely Friendship

    The book arrived in the mail yesterday morning, and I finished it last night!

    Lockey’s story is stunning and awful and beautiful. As I read it, I felt like I was sitting across from a new friend at a Jersey diner, listening to her tell me about her strange and wonderful life. It’s a story told with bravery, boldness, and palpable vulnerability.

    I became a part of her deep, lingering conversation. I laughed, and I cried. I got angry and I got inspired.
