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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Preordered this, disappointed, very short. 19 July 2014
By Hudds

I reordered this after reading the excellent trapped, if I'd have known it was so short I don't think I would have bothered.
Yes it's very well written but unfortunately ends abruptly and leaves many questions about the boy unanswered -yes,there is brief synopsis of what happens after he leaves Rosie but for me it lacked depth and description.
Shame after the excellent previous book.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars SENIORTEENAGER 28 Aug 2014

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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed 20 July 2014
By Jayne
Verified Purchase
I agree with some of the other reviewers , very short story half of the pages contain the first few chapters of Casey Watson's latest book which I had already read (which in my opinion was no where near as good as her other books ) I shall not be purchasing any of these short stories on kindle again, unless I have read the reviews, and know what's what with the content.

1.0 out of 5 stars a short story. 17 Aug 2014
By Timmy
Verified Purchase
Enjoyable but way, way, way too short. Needs to be billed as a short story, not a book. Shame because I would have given it more stars had I not felt ripped off because it was interesting, and the author has an engaging style.

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