When special education teacher Torey Hayden first met fifteen year old Kevin, he was barricaded under a table. Desperately afraid of the world around him, he hadn't spoken a word in eight years. He was considered hopeless, incurable, but Hayden refused to believe it, though she realised it might well take a miracle to break through the walls he had built around himself. With unwavering devotion and gentle, patient love, she set out to free him, - and slowly uncovered a shocking violent history and a terrible secret that an unfeeling bureaucracy had simply filed away and forgotten. But she never gave up on this tragic "lost case". For a trapped and frightened boy desperately needed her help - and she knew in her heart she could not rest easy until she had rescued him from the darkness.

None of her books could have the impact on reading One Child and the dreadful plight of Shelia....but did continue with Murphy's Boy and soon lost in the World of Kevin and Charity again...
It is very hard to imagine a life like Kevin had to endure and is a great credit to Torey that she never gave up on the boy where everyone else in his life had....I love all Torey's books she writes in an easy caring way which completely draws you into her books....There wasn't many times reading it where tears we not there....Torey went far more than could ever be expected to help him and deserves so much admiration for her unflagging efforts....Then there is Charity the other main character in the book and what a mesmerising charmer she was incredible little girl....Naturally funny she was a great balance to Kevin's awful dilemma to read....
A wonderful book Torey I forgive you for selling it twice !!
It was described as good condition. It is less than average in condition.
Yellow pages and ex library book.
Over priced for its condition.
Not read it yet as it is so rating is not reflective of book content.
