I didn't buy this book from here I borrowed it through my library's e-reading service but I think my review still counts. Bearing in mind the story was supposed to focus on the foster child I awarded stars, but the book lost one star for not explaining who named people are when their names are introduced, and two stars for the appalling chronology mixups that were distracting.

On page 1 she has 5 children of her own aged from 4 to 14. On page 2 she says she has 4 children, and the 14 year old is talking and playing like she's about 8, even though all the children apparently have homework to do. At the beginning of the story the little foster child is 3. In the final chapter, 16 years later, when the foster child is 19, the 14 yr old is in her late teens, and the 4 year old twins are 11.

Ok I accept she may have invented her real family in order to protect identities, but a little more care could have been put into getting the story consistent!

I've read all of Mia Marconi's short stories about being a Foster Carer and would liken her books to those written by the likes of Cathy Glass, Rosie Lewis and Casey Watson. I've enjoyed all of Mia's books but for me this one is worthy of five stars as I can see how dramatically the authors writing has improved since her first book. The story of Kira is heartbreaking and like most books of this genre you are left in awe of these people who open up their homes to some of the most troubled, abused and disadvantaged children and try to make a difference. So far all of Mia's books have been short stories but I think it's now time for a full length book. Loved it.

I found this very interesting. I read it because I am a foster carer and was looking for answers. I am lucky the teenager I have has never been as difficult as the children Mia has had. Although I have learned a lot from her books. Would recommend it to anyone fostering or thinking about it.

I am glad that there are people like mia around to become the ones that make a difference to the lives of children who would otherwise not know what a family was.

Mia writes so well it keeps you hooked on her stories. This little girl is one of the ones who desperately needs the care she so lovingly gives. Brilliant

Brilliantly wrote, however, I think it's follows the lines of a Cathy glass story
