About the Author
Casey Watson is a specialist foster carer. She has been working in this field for eleven years after giving up her position as a behaviour manager for a local school. During this time she has welcomed 14 difficult to place children into her home.
As a specialist foster carer she works with profoundly damaged children, seeing each child through a specific behavioural modification programme, at the end of which they will hopefully be in the position to be returned either back to their family or into mainstream foster care.
Casey combines fostering with writing, usually late at night when the rest of the family is sleeping. Casey is married with two grown-up children and three grandchildren. The name Casey Watson is a pseudonym.

Anyone wanting a Misery Memoir of note,should read books by either Tory Hayden, or Cathy Glass. These amazing women have worked with children not for just a few short years, but long enough to offer professional advice on caring for the many unfortunate children that are so badly in need of help, and love.
The Boy No One Loved is a poor example of good foster caring.
However, the way this book was written was terrible. It would've been much better if she'd had either a ghost writer or a decent editor. Read like a GCSE English submission, which detracted from the harrowing content in its general awfulness, hence the low rating.
There was a whole catalogue of unbelievable abuse this poor boy suffered until he finally snapped and burned down the house and then went into VOLUNTARY care - whilst she was able to keep the other children :shock:
He had 20 failed placements before going to Casey and her husband, Mike, and the story of how they helped him merely it seems by simply loving him and caring about him is truly touching.
Highly recommend this book.
Casey's description of Jason's stay with them as their first foster child was emotional and moving especially the insight into the bond that was developed between Justin, Casey, her husband Mike and their own Children and also their first grandchild.
It is a really heartwarming and positive account of how fostering can change lives.
Well done Mike and Casey keep up the good work.
