This is such a dramatic book I couldn't put it down and read it in one sitting. I loved the unpredictable characters and really felt for the poor little girl stuck in the middle. How Mia and her family survived I will never know. I've just seen that there is a third. Book to come and will definitely read it

The nice thing about this book is the size. It's ideal for a handbag.

I read both Cathy Glass and Casey Watson and felt this book didn't come anywhere near them, even though a review somewhere said that if you liked their books you'd love this one. How wrong.

Mia certainly has a lot of time to do all the family things and be a foster carer as well.

The only thing going for this book was the fact that it filled a morning in as it was raining and I couldn't go out.

I gave this 5 stars as I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Would have loved it to have lasted longer though.. If you like Cathy Glass, Casey Watson you will like this book.

This is not just a tale from the child's life but a look into the family. Mia has given a good insight into the surrounding lives and its very interesting. Well worth reading

Really isn't that believable.... is this a true story and how does Mia fit all this in around her own children.
