Product Description

Product Description

A heartbreaking and shocking short story from foster carer Rosie Lewis.

Toddler Charlie falls from the second floor window of his tower block home while his mother is busy shooting up in their dirty council flat.

Laying alone on a pile of rubbish until concerned neighbours hear him whimpering, Charlie is taken to hospital by police officers who are unable to rouse his mother.

With a gash to his head, a terrified Charlie is delivered to foster carer Rosie Lewis’s home. As Charlie opens up about his past, a picture of the traumatic life the little boy has endured so far becomes clear.

5.0 out of 5 stars I loved this short story 20 July 2014
Verified Purchase
I loved this short story. Full of emotion and sensitive insight, it was a poignant read. I hope Rosie continues to open her home and heart to children like Charlie.
I only have one negative comment which seems to chime with other readers - why the need to include chapters from someone else's book? I wasn't quite halfway through reading this short story when it ended (at less than 50%!). It was disorientating and detracts from the reading experience.
That aside, it was another great read from Rosie.

THE WAS BRILLIANT AS EXPECTED, BUT, I WAS EXPECTING IT TO BE MORE THAN 48% OF THE DOWNLOAD !! IT THEN GAVE 3 CHAPTERS OF ANOTHER BOOK, WHICH I PRESUME I WAS EXPECTED TO PURCHASE IN ORDER TO FIND OUT WHAT THE OUTCOME WAS. IT WOULD HAVE BEEN MORE HONEST TO MAKE IT TWO COMPLETE STORIES AND LET IT BE KNOWN BEFORE HAND THAT WAS WHAT WAS. COME ON AMAZON LETS HAVE A LITTLE MORE HONESTY.

5.0 out of 5 stars A small boys cry 26 July 2014

Another good book by rosie Lewis. Awful how kids are neglected and so badly treated by birth parents. Again as with the other foster kids she writes about so lucky to be helped by rosie. Look forward to reading the next book

Excellent read about foster carers experience, written in a warm, engaging style , it does need to be billed as a short story as the price reflects

4.0 out of 5 stars So moving 16 Oct 2014

This was a very sad story and even more so as it was a true story. It was good to be told the back ground of the little boy's family and I liked the way the book ended with the follow up to his life and a happy ending.
