Mother of teenager who ran away with former Petts Wood teacher Jeremy Forrest to pen a book on the case

News Shopper: Jeremy Forrest Jeremy Forrest

The mother of the teenager abducted by Petts Wood man Jeremy Forrest is writing a book on the ordeal.

'Runaway Schoolgirl' will document the anguish she suffered after finding out her daughter had run away with the former maths teacher, according to a national newspaper.

It is said the book is due out next February, preceding Forrest's release from prison by a matter of months.

Now 31, Forrest is currently serving five-and-a-half years behind bars for abduction and sex offences after fleeing with the 15 year-old to France in 2012. 

Forrest worked at Bishop Justus School in Bromley Common before moving to a job in Sussex, where he met the schoolgirl. 

The author, who said she felt like "the world's worst mum" during the trial, and her daughter cannot be named for legal reasons.

If this self-serving drama queen was my mother, I'd run away too! From her awful statements during and after the trial she sounds like a first-class narcissist - and now she's writing a book? Wow. No wonder the poor girl has issues. Poor bloke too. He was all sorts of an idiot to let himself get involved with her but his sentence was well harsh. He'll probably be fine in the end though - it's the girl I feel for, stuck with a family like that.

stupid comment; weve seen how these people are starting to get caught out now for things they thought they could get away with years ago and heavy jail terms are now being dished out; we neet to root out these people from society including politicians from the main political partys who covered up disgusting abuse by their people in high ranks of their political partys just like we have discovered with the liberal party;
under age sex has to be taken seriously and those guilty sent down for double figure sentences esp this so called teacher who took advantage of a under age school girls emotions and took her out of the country when he was supposed to be in a position of trust;
we saw the hush up PIE movement where perverts tried to fetch down the age of consent from the 80 s and these people are supposed to be the political parties of so called respectability!
keep jailing them until they realise us mothers will not stand idly by to watch perverts take our daughters away!

Nothign stupid about the comment. There was NOTHING for Forrest and Stammers to be caught for... They did nothgin worng and note how I use the world THEY. THEY were a couple that formed naturally, based on likeing each other, gettign close, fancying each other falling in love and carign for each other.

Thus there was NEVER any abuse from Forrest or similar cases...

ABUSe indicated DRUGGING, FORCE, THREAT, VIOLENCE, CONTROLLING TRAPPED AND IMPRISONED PEOPLE, BLACKMAIL, CORECION, MANIPLUATION, FEAR, TAKING ADVANTAGE OF THOSE WHO HAVE NO IDEA WHAT IS HAPPENING.

CUDDLES, HAND HOLDING, SOPPY PET NAMES ARE NOT ABUSE.

Ripping apart happy loving couples in love is. Thsi case would be nbo didfferent to arrestign MIXED RACE COUPLES, GAY OR LESBAINS COUPLES, HOW ABOUT JAAILING DOWNS SYNDROME COUPELS AND SAYIGN THEY CANT KNOW WHAT LOVE IS AS NOT NORMAL.

IT IS NORMAL AND COMMON PLACE for girls Stammers age to be checkign out boys, datign, amkign out with boys, telling their friends how far they have gone sexaully with boys, certainly be up to 2nd base, moving to 3rd base, many will be sexaul fully by 15 and using condoms and being quite sensible. The consent laws were originally only intended to stop ARRANGED MARRIAGE AND PIMPING CONTROL OF YOUNG GIRLS.

Not to pander to deranged nutters who need to go to specsavers to notice their teenage daughters are no longer children, grown breasts, public hair, an interest in the opposite sex and wanting to party. All that matters is things progress at a level both are happy with and girls mature faster than boys. Its common place for thise in mid teens to date those in later teens and 20s, they have the same interests in life, ie gigs, cinema, parties, pulling.

Megan has always insistend it was all consentual, she knew what she was doing, and very happy with the activity level. They have always talked abotu how much they cared for each others and they took their time to get sexaul.

There is no taking advantage, these girls know what they are doign and how to work boys... after all who pays for dinner, carries the books, buyt s the jewllery and flowers etc?

the couple left the cpounbtry to get away from abusive folk like you as wanted to be together, she could have run away and asked for help at any time.

This position of trust nonsense is BS to pander to the same nutboj mentality that abusies Disney actresses for their secting photos and flirty behavour... so its either girls are theese defencless, innocent pathetic wipes or **** and whores, they are neither, they are just girls who wnat to be pretty, sexy and get boy attention just like the boys in teens and beyond to get somone to snuggle.

Sorry but news lady... your daughters will go pull boys, grow up and leave home to get a sex life, its nature you wont control them

There was no perverting here and the guys aint taking yoru daughters away its your kind driving them away.

instead ask the daughter to bring the boyfriend around. If this is a teacher student relationship and the girl is in teens of 'datign age' ie 14 plus and the teacher is clearly a bit immature and soppy for her then set fair ground rules like cefews, she lives with mum not moves in with him, she has to spend time with mates her own age, somone else double checks his marking of her as you would if a relative. Both get reltionship councilling and if they have a fight or break up then its reported and behavour monitored.

Ie what you would do if peoeple at work dated and one was in a supervisory or management position so no blackmail or use of power and not sleeping your way up for preferential treatment and no spiteful he made me do it comments after to get back after a break up when not true.


other than that the couple can que up for a make out session in the broom cupboard and bike shed snog slot like anyone else, Other students can say see you in class sir and Hi Megan as they pass them making out in the park. And could be useful for her to bring her older boyfriend to teen parties to act as bouncer if needed.


Far better she dates a teacher than some chav gang violent yob

Oh and several mates were datign mid teens with guys in 20s, the girls I knew were fiesty rick chicks who could pummel guys twice their size, were sexaully confident, and usually the guys had been more the shy type when younger that I knew and were happy to see them and could easily dumb the guy and get a replacement any time they wanted... this idea of vulnerable teen girl is a delusion, as is the older guy must be preditory. Guys and girls dates as they like each other

Does this girl really need her mother to keep going over and over again what happened? Surely she should have enough respect for her daughter to let her move on with her life without keep being reminded about it. Or is the mother hoping to make a "fast buck" out of selling her daughter out??? Personally, I wouldn't buy it. What a shallow way to gain a few quid.

Well Said...

All this could have been avoided if instead of peoepl being poh my gawd a teacher is dstign my little girl, they applied their brains and acknowledge the fact of life.

14-15 year girls have one primary interest... boys, not just any boys usually older boys, they have the baby making kit, they learn or instinctively work out how to seduce, get attention from, how to manipluate the guys and make them compete for their attention, they want to lmake out and work up the bases.

Boys this age more likely to just have a big **** collection and often pretty rubbish at getting girls.

Thus older guys are often not preditory, they are just runnign several years behind femelss so guys date younger girls girls date older boys commonly, though in muscels and a nice job and income girls are interested.

The things with boys and girls is biting off more than can chew and tryign to run before they walk, but the progress on this resltionship showed it went slow and far from the bad boy thug moron type this girl picked smart, nice careign dude, who meant her no harm and they liked each others so instead of driving the couple away, why not ask her friends what they thought of it as several were helping the couple, ask the daughter about him, and cotton on the the fact they as a couple they were fine, and it would ahve made a whole lot more sense to invite the guy to dinner... or kidnap him for interrogation, sus out he loves her she loves him so set some ground rules of the we will let you go but we have eye on you and can drop you in it so you getter respect our duaghter type, plus she has to see her mates, no living with you or moving out as she is still a teen, normal teen cerfew, we know you are having sex so that will continue but sort contraception etc.

That way no running away, no more sneakign around, all things monitors for both parties security, no break up of mum and daughter relationship, no wasted authourities resources,, he kept job and she aint dating some yobbo hoodie gang thugs piece of excrement.

yes he is somewhat older but on the plus vs minus points it was a good one so why ruin the guys life, if anythgin he should get most of the proceeds in compensation for his ruined life and lost love
