Product description

About the Author

For many years, Liz Fisher-Frank worked as a solicitor specialising in representing children and young people. She set up and ran projects in law firms and charities aimed at helping young people access advice. Much of her work was for young people in or leaving care, the homeless and those facing family problems. Liz also campaigned to help improve access to the law for young people. Liz is now busy writing. Her books and plays all have some kind of connection to the law. She is still a big believer in improving awareness of the law amongst children and young people. The only difference is that she is attempting to do that, in her own small way, now as a writer rather than a lawyer.

Format: Paperback
I was fortunate enough to find this book laying on a seat in a London Underground train earlier this week. In days gone by, this was a frequent occurence but since the advent of the Kindle etc., commuters no longer leave their reading hardware for others to enjoy.

I have to say that I am not a teen, and I guess this is the agegroup the book is aimed at. The plot centres around a teenage girl in care, a teenage illegal immigrant and exploitative and dismissive adults.

The story touches on a multitude of issues affecting these people, centred around the traffiking of young Kurds from Turkey. This is a neat and effective way of 'realising' the oppresive lives lived by others, both in this country and abroad.

If, like me, you are pretty ignorant of world issues and stuff that goes on outside the sphere of stable british family life then I would not hesitate to recommend this book. It is an eye-opener for sure and the story line has enough teen love and angst at the attitudes of grown-ups for the target reader to identify with.

It is interesting that the author is involved with human rights and this comes across in the story. There is no hesitation in describing the native plight of the Kurds and it is refreshing to find a lack of exaggeration in political fiction. The notes at the end of the book describing the real case on which the story is based endorses the sense of authenticity obtained when reading the book and I am sure will inspire those with only a passing interest for world affairs to find out a bit more.

This book is really worth a read or buying for a teenager. I will be passing my copy on to my daughter as I know she will enjoy it. I will also look out for the next book and not rely on chance to find one on the tube.

How I wish this easy read, provocative book had been available when I was still teaching disaffected vulnerable adolescents.
The quick moving action, the vivid descriptions, the general apathy of the establishment and the simple explanation of the legal framework would have been a fantastic catalyst for discussion and debate not only about these issues but also about relationships, emotions, effects of trauma and impulsive risky behaviours.
A well written provocative page turner, a must read for all key stage three/four PSHE teachers and students.

I love this book and couldnt put it down from start to finish! I've learnt about child trafficking and lots of other things which I did not know anything about. What I particularly loved about this book was how it was based on a true story which made it more believable and dramatic. I had mixed emotions through out this book, although it is a true story and sad, I found some parts of the book funny. I recommend this book to everyone, especially people my age!

I was fortunate to have been passed this wonderful novel by my late mother, who was fascinated by the story Liz Fisher Frank weaves. As in so many things, she was right. I couldn't put it down, and was wholly take over by the realistic characters and their often harrowing experiences in the care system. Very well researched and very well written. I can't wait to read the next one!

I have to say, as a school Librarain it is my duty to read the books before I put them on the shelf. I have been fortunate to meet Liz and the book does not disappoint.It is fast pace, gritty as well as page turning.I have a reserved waiting list for this book and we can't wait for the next book to come out.

Format: Paperback
Partially based on fact, this is the story of a 15 year old girl in the UK care system who is exposed to child trafficking, human rights violations and the general apathy of any adults that are supposed to be taking an interest in her well being.
This is a brilliant book, written in such a way that young adults can understand. It gives them an understanding that adults are not always right and do not always have their best interests at heart. It empowers them to stand up for what they beleive in and challenge bad behaviour of those adults around them.
