Présentation de l'éditeur

Bestselling author and foster carer Casey Watson tells the shocking and deeply moving true story of a young girl with severe behavioural problems.

This is the first of several stories about ‘difficult’ children Casey helped during her time as a behaviour manager at her local comprehensive.

Casey has been in the post for six months when thirteen-year-old Imogen joins her class. One of six children Casey is teaching, Imogen has selective mutism. She’s a bright girl, but her speech problems have been making mainstream lessons difficult.

Life at home is also hard for Imogen. Her mum walked out on her a few years earlier and she’s never got on with her dad’s new girlfriend. She’s now living with her grandparents. There’s no physical explanation for Imogen’s condition, and her family insist she’s never had troubles like this before.

Everyone thinks Imogen is just playing up – except the member of staff closest to her, her teacher Casey Watson. It is the deadpan expression she constantly has on her face that is most disturbing to Casey. Determined there must be more to it, Casey starts digging and it’s not long before she starts to discover a very different side to Imogen’s character.

A visit to her grandparents’ reveals that Imogen is anything but silent at home. In fact she’s prone to violent outbursts; her elderly grandparents are terrified of her.

Eventually Casey’s hard work starts to pay off. After months of silence, Imogen utters her first, terrified, words to Casey: ‘I thought she was going to burn me.’

Dark, shocking and deeply disturbing, Casey begins to uncover the reality of what Imogen has been subjected to for years.

I also prefer CW's foster care stories. This memoir was ok, but I found the story not as interesting as her others.I was also a bit annoyed about the whole Selective Mutism angle since I have a child with it. It is usually caused by an in-born predisposition for social anxiety. Imogen does not fit the criteria. While some children do become mute temporarily from trauma, it is not what SM usually entails. She should not have been in SPED but in mainstream education with counseling/psychiatric support IMO. I know this was a while ago and also in the UK; just a personal note. The number of students and their problems were hard to keep track of, and did Casey have special ed teaching training? Some of their 'lessons' did not seem up to par for their age if their issues were not academic.Then Casey's family activities at home were difficult for the reader to transition to, a comment on writing-style. I just wasn't impressed.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 I was disappointed in this Casey Watson book 27 juillet 2014

I was looking forward to this book by Casey..and had my pre-order in for months.. But for the first time.. I was disappointed in this Casey Watson book.. I was following her family as they grew. moved away from home, getting their educations.. finding love and in Rileys case having babies.. I was thinking this book would continue on at that point.. but it was not like that. This book went way back to when the kids were still at home... and she was working out of the house.. not as a foster carerer.. The story just never grabbed me ,and in fact I didnt finish the book..

This book tells about a girl with selective mutism in a way that you can understand the workings of her world. Casey is an amazing woman that is set to save so many children. I love all of her stories and the open honesty that she brings into her writing.
4.0 étoiles sur 5 A bit different from Watson's usual books... 29 avril 2015

Prior to becoming a foster carer with husband Mike, Casey Watson worked in a specialized unit at a comprehensive school. It was her job to help troubled children and try to sort out their issues so they could be returned to mainstream classrooms.

When 13-year-old Imogen arrives in Casey's classroom, she is said to have selective mutism, meaning some trauma or stressor caused Imogen to retreat into herself and not speak. Casey is determined to get Imogen speaking and interacting with classmates again. However, she must first unravel the mysteries of Imogen's young life. She knows Imogen's mother left the family two years earlier, and that Imogen's father has since remarried, sending her to live with her grandparents. The grandparents, however, insist that Imogen's problems are not family-based, but rather due to peer bullying over her red hair. Casey isn't so sure, but she's determined to get to the bottom of it all.

While this book isn't what longtime readers may be used to, the typical focus on a severely troubled foster child, and the story goes back to the mid-90s, meaning the intersecting anecdotes about the Watson's home life are about her own children still as teens, it's still a good read. Above all, the format is similar - a troubled child struggling with her world, and Casey determined to help.

This was a WONDERFUL story of a girl who needed help finding her voice! I highly recommend this book to people of all ages, but is a great young adult book.
