From pride to shame: a boy's fall from grace. From rural Australia to the remote Philippines, the true story of my extraordinary childhood.
This is the story of a little boy who had everything, and lost it.
In fact, he didn't lose it - it was ripped from him. One day he was the apple of everyone's eye, the next he was burdened with a terrible secret. And none of it was his fault, but the boy was too young to know that at the time. He was shocked into pretending that everything was normal when the reverse was true: his whole world had been turned upside down.
Yet the boy's act was so masterful, no-one realized that anything was wrong.
