A new short story from the nation’s favourite foster carer.
Sixteen-year-old Rebecca has been in care all her life, bouncing from foster carers and children’s homes without ever having a permanent home to call her own.
Social Services are at a loss as to what to do with the troubled teenager. Prone to violent outbursts and sudden, uncontrollable tantrums, Rebecca has never spent more than a few months in any one placement. When she comes to live with foster carer Maggie Hartley, it seems like there is little hope of Rebecca ever finding a long-term home. Her strange behaviour and sudden flashes of anger present challenges unlike any Maggie has ever seen before.
But when a secret from Rebecca’s past finally comes to light, it seems that Maggie has finally found the root of this vulnerable girl’s out-of-control behaviour.
Can Maggie help Rebecca come to terms with her past and realise she’s not to blame?
