Great entertainment !! If you have ever had the care of a child you will love this book.It may be short but it is the funniest and most moving story I have read in a long time; you get your money's worth on every page. Claire Forster gives us a wealth of farcical and touching anecdotes as she learns to improvise wildly in response to the unlikely challenges set by the neglected and emotionally abused children assigned to her as a "rookie" foster carer. The reader is involved by her unconventional but highly readable writing as she tries to keep one step ahead of her charges. She makes you laugh out loud, she makes you weep, she might possibly shock you, but above all she fills you with hope for the future of these lovely kids as she reveals her true feelings of love and protection for them.
