    'Christie will never be able to tell her story herself. But as the mum of such a bright star, I will ensure she is heard. I will never give up because I know that she never would have.'—Tracey Marceau& On the morning of 7 November 2011, Tracey Marceau lived every mother's worst nightmare. A young man entered her home, pushing Tracey to the side before kicking and repeatedly stabbing her daughter. Emergency services arrived within minutes, but were too late - Christie died in her mother's arms.Christie's killer, Akshay Chand, had been released on bail just a month earlier for charges relating to kidnapping Christie, during which he threatened to rape and kill her. Christie had begged the courts to keep him in custody, fearing for her life. Her death was entirely preventable. Christie is her story.We learn of her happy family life and teenage years, the events leading up to her killing (including Chand's growing infatuation and the kidnapping), as well as discover in previously untold detail what happened that day.& Tracey shares how she and the family pulled together amid unthinkable tragedy and got their lives back on track. Importantly, this book questions how a calculating, cold-blooded killer could be found not guilty on grounds of insanity, and how our country's bail laws could let an ordinary family down so disastrously.Raw, moving and thought-provoking, Christie is a& tribute to a daughter taken too soon.
