Compelling Story but I feel guilty reading it!
on 4 June 2014
I have read several of these books - this being the latest - and they are very compelling almost by definition - sad young early lives given serious positive hope has to be a heartwarming formula. But I'm worried that so much detail is given of the child/ children, social services, parents and others involved and I'm beginning to feel guilty about reading these true stories in quite so much detail. I actually emailed Casey to ask if all parties have given their permission for the facts to be set out so graphically but have not yet received an answer (perhaps not surprising since she must be pretty busy). I've seen these concerns expressed elsewhere but never a response. perhaps I'm worrying needlessly but it would be really reassuring to see some confirmation that all parties featured in the books are happy to have such intimate details of their daily lives shared.
