Publisher's Summary

This is the heartbreaking story of the murder of 16-year-old Bristol schoolgirl Becky Watts, a personal and heartfelt account of a crime that shocked the nation in a unique way and tore a family in two.

A vulnerable and shy girl, Becky Watts was brutally murdered and dismembered by her own stepbrother on 19 February 2015. As her father, Darren, discovered the horrific details of what happened to his darling girl, his world fell apart.

Writing about his darkest hours and unbearable pain, Darren uncovers what Becky's relationship with her stepbrother, Nathan, a child he had raised as his own son, was really like. He recalls the devastation of discovering the truth about the depravity with which Becky was torn from him in the safety of her own home. And he recounts the torment of the legal battle to see his stepson sentenced to life behind bars.

But at its heart, Becky is a poignant personal story, a chance for Darren to pay tribute to his darling daughter, to celebrate her life and take back control of how she is remembered.

Darren recalls with enduring love the daughter he fought so hard to get custody of after she was taken into foster care as an infant, the happy child who completed his life, and the innocent schoolgirl who brought joy and happiness to all her knew her. Both heartfelt and haunting, searingly honest and unflinching, this is the ultimate story of a family tragedy.

    Story
    "Sadly insightful"

    I've read a few real crime books, this was really well written by Becky's father, he gave real insight to the family and Becky's life. While I was reading this I kept thinking how brave he was to write this and he wasn't one sided at all. It tells a real story about an every day family whose life got turned upside down by someone who turned bad. I hope life can one day become bearable for you all. Thanks for the read

    "How sad"

    How sad and brave those parents had been.
    The love they have for each other.
    Each day I listened with a lump in my throat and tears in my eyes to think someone could do such a horrific crime and think they could get away with it.

    Story
    "Beautiful"

    A moving portrait of a daughter by her heartbroken father. His love for Becky is evident in every page. Slightly odd accent of narrator at times is worth perserving with to hear this tale of afamily torn apart.

    "Really good"

    Tough book to listen to at times and imagine extremely hard for a father to write but done in a wonderful way considering the circumstances. Would recommend.
