‘I’m so sorry, Casey,’ my link worker John said, sounding weary. ‘I know this is probably the worst time I could ring you, but we desperately need someone to take a child tonight.’
It’s the night before Christmas when Casey and Mike get the call. A twelve year old girl, stuck between a rock and a hard place. Her father is on a ventilator, fighting for his life, while her mother is currently on remand in prison. Despite claiming she attacked him in self-defence, she’s been charged with his attempted murder.
The girl is called Bella, and she’s refusing to say anything. The trouble is that she is also the only witness…
I have read quite a few of Casey Watson’s books and find them utterly heartbreaking by what some of the children have been through. You can’t ever imagine it. Casey Watson is a foster carer and these are her stories from the previous children she has looked after. I think she does an amazing job helping the children. This story is about twelve year old Bella and we discover why she is refusing to say anything. A sad story but one that has a happy ending.
I was given a ARC of this book for an honest review.
