'Unputdownable' Sunday World 'This harrowing book should be read by anyone who cares how the State copes with troubled children' -- Irish Examiner Wednesday's Child is a serious but accessible book, and it casts an illuminating light on the lives of people who are so often unacknowledged.

By turns funny, angry, touching and, ultimately, almost unbearbly moving, it is a stunning achievement. -- John Connolly
