Product Description

About the Author

Casey Watson, who writes under a pseudonym, is a specialist foster carer. She and her husband, Mike, look after children who are particularly troubled or damaged by their past.

Before becoming a foster carer Casey was a behaviour manager for her local comprehensive school. It was through working with these ‘difficult’ children – removed from mainstream classes for various reasons – that the idea for her future career was born.

Casey is married with two children and three grandchildren.

Casey has had a two year break from fostering due to family circumstances. She receives an unexpected phone call from her link worker, John, who is with an 11 year old boy, Tyler, who has stabbed his stepmother. Both she her husband (Tyler's father), won't have him back. With nowhere to go, Casey and Mike agree to foster him. He has had a tragic life. His mother died when he was 3 years old from a drug overdose and he has been cruelly treated in his current loveless home. Always prepared for a challenge, Casey certainly has a formidable opponent in Tyler. He is an angry, intensely troubled unruly boy who swears like a trooper.

Casey and Mike begin their behaviour management programme with Tyler that stretches their expertise. Slowly, more is revealed about Tyler's life and the reasons he has such behavioural problems, enabling Casey to try to remedy them. Casey and her family never cease to amaze me. She is constantly soul-searching and self-critical, not afraid of asking herself or others, whether she is making the right decisions; has she made mistakes or could she have done things in a better way? This honest approach to her caring work is always refreshing. The support of Mike, her family and the social workers are crucial. As time passes and Tyler's rehabilitation programme continues, changes occur in this profound and highly emotional true story that have the most surprising and unexpected conclusion. A wonderful and enjoyable Casey Watson book. Perhaps her best yet?

What a story! I feel so sad about Cameron and also Tyler's life before going to the Watson household. The best ending imaginable! This is the best book by far of Casey Watson and they've all been magnificent. Give it a read, you won't be sorry. Best of luck to Tyler and all the Watson family. I was expecting his real father to have dumped the girl and took both the boys himself, not the ending he did get. I prefer this ending to him going to Gareth again. Good lad Tyler

This has to be the best Casey Watson book yet, the ending is totally unexpected, and the whole story is heart warming. Great book, easy to read, hard to put down.

Casey writes like she is narrating the story, it is so fluid and easy to read, though the content is naturally upsetting in parts. I Highly recommend this book to anyone interested in helping children overcome bad experiences , especially foster carers, as Casey is so obviously a fantastic foster parent .

It's hard to think that children suffer to such depths these days... But of course they do... Thank God for good, kindhearted foster parents who give their all to help these poor souls... Well written... Casey Watson is a brilliant writer... I've read most of her books and enjoyed every one of them...

I think this is the best one yet Casey. A very moving story of a,sad young boy who had been dealt a bad hand of cards. I am so pleased you turned him around and loved him as he should be loved. Even better you are both his forever parents.

Very moving made me cry .

An absolutely heartbreaking story from Casey but what an unexpected and beautiful ending. I'd say one of her best to date, much prefer reading her fostering memoirs rather than than her teaching days.
