I found this book much harder to get into than the other books by Torey Hayden I have read. After quick a long gap between reading sessions I decided to give it one more chance before putting it aside and this time I did go on and read the whole book. I think perhaps the problem was that it featured three people but only one really seamed to co to any sort of resolve.

I enjoy Torey Hayden's writing and was delighted to find a new one from her. It is a wonderful look at her work and she really helps us to see very fully the inner lives of the children she works with. I was especially grateful with this one to have an epilogue that let us know what happened to this child after she moved away from Ms Hayden's area. I found it fascinating to see how social services operate in another country. Doesn't seem like anyone has found a perfect solution.

I read several of Torey Hayden's wonderful books before Library Thing started ---how well do I remember them? I'm thinking I need to go back and find her earlier works to catch up. She is so descriptive in her experiences working with children. It takes a very special person to do what she manages to do.

While I enjoyed Torey Hayden's writing style and gift for character development, I was disturbed somewhat about how she was the hero and everyone else seemed against her to an extent. As someone who adopted three kids with special needs and fosters other kids, I would have been angered if one of my kids were depicted in one of the author's books. Our kids have to work incredibly hard for any small gain, and school is a relatively small part of their days. Our kids struggle with sleeping, eating, dressing and interacting with other people (mine are all behaviorally challenged as well). To give credit to only one person when it is almost always a team of individuals working together to bring out the light in a child is really misleading.… (més)
