Publisher's Summary

After taking a few weeks off work, Casey is presented with a new foster child: 14-year-old Elise, whose Mum left her at just five years old.

At first, she’s no trouble at all, that is until she falsely accuses another carer, Jan, of acting inappropriately towards her. It turns out this isn’t the first lie Elise has told—her previous carer was constantly following up allegations Elise had made of people bullying her, trying to have sex with her or hurting her physically. With some reservations, Casey agrees to take Elise on long-term, but when she makes some dark claims about her mum, Casey doesn’t know whether to believe her. In any case, she is determined to find out the truth....

best book ever i could not stop listening to it and didn’t watch it to end. thanks

i loved this book because it was so believable. it breaks my heart how so many kids are treated.
Then people say how could this kid or person go on a shooting spree. i think after the s..t they are brought up to endure it like the pain and hurt is just so overwhelming they don’t know where to turn 🥲🥲🥲🥲🥲

Best yet by author and narrator

This is the best book by the author so far and I have read all of her books. Also, the narrator finally has come up with a good tone and pace that do not sound terrible I actually enjoyed reading and listening to her in this book. In previous books she was so difficult to tolerate. Really impressed with both of them and think they have both grown a lot in writing and presenting a book

Another great memwa.

Really enjoyed this book. Casey always does everything possible to help every child she cares for and never gives up on any of them. I was happy that Elize got a happy ending after what she went through.
