About the Author

Lisa Cherry is a highly regarded independent lecturer, keynote speaker (on trauma, attachment, recovery, looked after children, and the experience of care leavers), writer and coach. Lisa has worked extensively with young people in a variety of roles, including as a social worker in residential and care leaving environments. Kate is an author, speaker and trainer with an international reputation for her work around attachment, trauma and resilience, particularly in relation to vulnerable children and young people. She has been a social worker for forty years, and a trainer for twenty years.


"I would recommend the book to anyone who wants a good insider's account of the care system. It is uniquely powerful." - Dr Jim Goddard, Chair, The Care Leavers' Association "Ms Cherry says her ambition is to describe how it 'feels' to be a child in care - and in that she succeeds beautifully. With the gift of a true story-teller, she uses her own experience of being in care and those of others to give voice to an often hidden population. Honest, intelligent and highly readable - this book is worth a hundred academic tomes to anyone who wants to truly understand what it means to have been a looked after child. This is a must read for policy makers." Shahid Naqvi, British Association of Social Workers
