Book Description

The fourth in a series of true short stories from foster carer Mia Marconi.

Kira first came to foster carer Mia Marconi’s home on respite care when she was three. She had suffered an unimaginable amount of abuse in her short life. Although she couldn’t tie her shoe laces, she could smash a room to pieces; she fought against everything like a wild cat.

At the age of five Kira moved permanently to live with Mia and her family, but by the time she was nine years old the whole family was at breaking point.

Mia is the kind of person who won’t give in and believes she can always change things for the better, but try as she might she can’t change Kira. So after six years, with a very heavy heart, she is forced to question whether she can really help this lost and damaged child.

Raw, shocking and honest, this short story will shed new light on the role of foster carers, revealing the kind of heartbreaking real life situations carers like Mia Marconi are confronted with every day.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Time for a full length book now Mia! Loved it. 27 Mar. 2015
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    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 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.
