“Torey Hayden deserves the kind of respect I can’t give many people. She isn’t valuable, she’s incredible. The world needs more like Torey Hayden.” – Boston Globe
"Read The Tiger's Child and the characters will haunt you." Indianapolis News.
"Resonates with drama… A deeply moving sequel." Library Journal.
Torey Hayden returns with this deeply-moving sequel to her first book, One Child (the Sunday Times bestseller). After seven years, Torey is reunited with Sheila, the disturbed 6-year-old she tried to rescue. Sheila was a deeply disturbed six-year-old when she came into Torey Hayden's life - a story poignantly chronicled One Child. The Tiger's Child picks up the story seven years later. Hayden has lost touch with the child she helped to free from a hellish inner prison of rage and silence. But now Sheila is back, now a gangly teenager with bright orange hair - no longer broken and lost, but still troubled and searching for answers. This story of dedication and caring that began in childhood moves into a new and extraordinary chapter that tests the strength and heart of both Sheila and her one-time teacher. In Tiger's Child the skilled and loving educator answers the call once again to help a child in need through her difficult yet glorious transition into young womanhood.See all Product description

Just another Kid
With this one I wasn't too impressed. For some reason I feel there's not enough Sheila moments in there and not enough grip. A lot of rambling as well which I found boring and skim read. The book starts with a summary of One Child which I have just finished reading so I skipped those chapters all together. However, it was still nice to find out what happened to Sheila and it is nice to know she is happy and successful lady now.
It was obvious that there was going to be a lot of concerns and unusual events in her teenage life. I felt that Tori was rather naive in the original book, but she was so young. Again, she showed a lot of naivety when going to meet Chad's family but she relly came through for Sheila in the end. What a gripping story and it was wonderful to find that Sheila actually made choices for herself in the end, with the huge support given to her by Tori.
It sort of gives you hope for the future of some of the troubled children i have seen through my teaching career but it will need a tremendously strong character to succeed.
But once again I have thoroughly enjoyed Torey Haden's account of this young girl
