Product Description

About the Author

Casey Watson is a specialist foster carer. She has been working in this field for six years after giving up her position as a behaviour manager for a local school. During this time she has welcomed 14 difficult to place children into her home.

As a specialist foster carer she works with profoundly damaged children, seeing each child through a specific behavioural modification programme, at the end of which they will hopefully be in the position to be returned either back to their family or into mainstream foster care.

Casey combines fostering with writing, usually late at night when the rest of the family is sleeping.

Casey is married with two grown-up children and three grandchildren.

The name Casey Watson is a pseudonym.

As an experienced foster carer, Casey Watson always expects the unexpected. This time she is on the receiving end of double-trouble. A knock on her door finds her fostering link worker with a 9 year old boy Jenson. His mother has gone to Spain with her boyfriend leaving Jenson and his 13 year old sister Carey in a 'Home Alone' situation. Jenson has a cheeky-chappy persona but is also a bully and a truant who is more than a handful. His mother has neglected him. He has a 'big secret' that makes him feel he is being blamed for anything that goes wrong near him. Two weeks later Casey accepts another 9 year old boy, Georgie, who has autism (Casey's son Kieron has a mild form). Georgie has been in a childrens' home since he was 2. He attends the same school as Jenson and has a ritualistic ordered life-style. He cannot form working relationships. Casey is always up for a challenge never having 2 boys in care before says, "After all, how difficult can two little boys be?". Casey and the family are about to find out.

This is a wonderfully written account of the trials and tribulations she and her supportive family are faced with. The skill and judgement of dealing with delicate situations and more aggressive 'freak-outs' are a wonder to behold. Her training in behavioural management is stretched to the limits, yet Casey never gives up her belief that she can improve and settle their lives, in a loving and caring environment. Treat with respect and they may respond respectfully. When Jenson's secret is revealed, Casey realises she has misjudged him. With the burden taken away, Jenson undergoes a remarkable change. Her tale is captivating and extremely moving as we read of the improvements she can achieve. We also gain an insight of the life and living with an autistic child. Her work is demanding, rewarding and invaluable. Marvellous. An epilogue of the two boys progress follows. A highly recommended and emotional read.

I loved this book and it has been the first one I have read but I shall read so .many more. My little brother has autism so it is easy for me to connect with Georgie but his twin is exactly like Jenson always taunting him so it really reflects my life quite well and I love it.
