Another fantastic book by Lesley Pearse

At this time Charlie is only 16, her mother is then taken to a hospital and then a nursing home, her mother is suffering very much from depression and Charlie decides to get herself a job, so she badgers Ivor to give her a job, who later on loves her like the daughter he lost.
There are a lot of people who come into Charlie life, Ivor, Beryl, Rita and Andrew who starts a relationship with Charlie, who is a fantastic young man, who stands by her through her highs and lows that come her way.

This book is full of content, including a murder, vicious attacks and abductions. Some parts of this book will make you very tearful.
Lesley Pearse books are so brilliant, I thought when I read 'Charity and 'Georgia', no book would be as good, but I can assure you 'Charlie', was equally as good, now I am going to start reading Gypsy'
