AN EXPOSING ACCOUNT OF THE REALITIES OF GROWING UP IN CARE AND WHY WE STILL NEED TO TAKE ACTION TO PROTECT BRITAIN'S MOST VULNERABLE CHILDREN.
Chris Wild grew up in the care system, and is now a 38-year-old husband and father of two beautiful children.
A powerful book that pulls on your heartstrings * Denise Welch
Chris Wild's searing expose of life in and around the children's care system in the early 1990s... this no-holds-barred, often distressingly graphic depiction of young lives lost to neglect and abuse in the north of England. The reader is at once moved, outraged and ashamed. Moved, because you would need a granite heart not to weep at the brutal destruction of innocence; outraged at how the perpetrators could get away with so much for so long, and how the system's indifference facilitated such horrors, and ashamed because chances are that you and I have, at some point, walked past and ignored these lost souls on the high street or in our local park... Read the book, get angry, and do anything and everything to ensure that, even in times of austerity and budget cuts, that those charged with caring for our nation's children remain scrutinised and accountable to the public. * outnewsglobal.com *
