Publisher's Summary

Neglected, unloved and rejected. A little girl desperate for a home to call her own.

At just 10 years old, Kirsty has already suffered a lifetime of heartache and suffering. Neglected by her teenage mother and taken into care, Kirsty thought she had found her forever family when she is fostered by Pat and Mike, whom she comes to see as her real mum and dad.

But when Pat has a heart attack and collapses in front of her, Kirsty's foster family say it's all her fault. They blame her temper tantrums for putting Pat under stress, and they don't want Kirsty in their lives anymore.

Kirsty is still reeling from this rejection when she comes to live with foster carer Maggie Hartley. She acts out, smashing up Maggie's home, and even threatens to hurt the baby boy Maggie has fostered since birth. Social Services must take Kirsty's threat seriously and Maggie is forced to choose between eight-month-old Ryan, who she's grown to love, or angry Kirsty, who will most likely end up in a children's home if Maggie can no longer care for her.

Maggie is in an impossible position, one that calls in to question her decision to become a foster carer in the first place....

So easy to fall in love with people in her books

Written with so much detail, Maggie Hartley’s books suck you into her world, making you love these children as much as she does. Be prepared to rejoice in their victories, and weep for their losses, to feel happy, sad, fear and frustration. Every child should have the opportunity to feel the love and safety that Maggie gives “her” kids.

not her best

constantly complained about how difficult the child was to deal with after describing a few bad temper tantrums. I don't know how maggie ever supposedly dealt with really troubled children after complaining about this kid so much :'(
