The deeply moving story of one child’s courage to survive in care in 1970s Britain
From the Back Cover
“It was like I was never meant to be in this world.”
When Nigel Cooper was just seven years old, his life took a tragic turn for the worse. After the untimely death of his sister and father, his mother asked social services to take him away – and things would never be the same again. For the next nine years of his life, Nigel was repeatedly rejected by his mum and grew up among bullies, abusers, psychopaths and criminals. At every turn, the system tried to break him, but his spirit could not be broken and it was a miracle that he survived.
Boy is a shocking, disturbing and emotional true story.
