I would agree with you, but her interview seems to belie that..She's not as naive as you would expect, but she did seem to believe her abduction had protected other children....I think she has unraveled some of Garrido's manipulations at this point but that seems to be a sticking point. The girls may not have been sexually abused, but they certainly were mentally and physically abused by Garrido. He forced affection on them on his terms. They lived out his religious and other delusions. They were forced to live in secret, in tents, without indoor plumbing or running water, no doctor or dentist visits, no peers or formal education. In the book, Jaycee mentions the girls were not surprised by the truth...They perceived their situation to be abnormal. If there was nothing wrong with the girls, the college police wouldn't have intervened.
