Présentation de l'éditeur

The fifth book from bestselling author and specialist foster carer Casey Watson.

A recent census shows that there are at least 175,000 child carers in the UK, 13,000 of whom care for more than 50 hours a week. Many remain invisible to a system that would otherwise help them. Abigail is one of those children. This is her story.

Ten-year-old Abigail has never known her father. Her mother, Sarah, has multiple sclerosis, and Abigail has been her carer since she was a toddler – shopping, cooking, cleaning and attending to her personal needs. When Sarah is rushed to hospital, suddenly this comes to the attention of the social services, and Abigail has nowhere to go.

Though she doesn’t fit the usual profile of a child that specialist foster carers Casey and Mike Watson would take on, they are happy to step in and look after Abigail. It’s an emergency, after all – and all that’s needed is a loving temporary home, while social services look into how to support the family so that they can be reunited.

But it soon becomes clear that this isn’t going to happen. Sarah’s MS is now at a very advanced stage, and the doctors are certain that there will no longer be periods of remission. Abigail’s emotional state starts to spiral out of control as she struggles to let go of the burden of responsibilities she has carried for so long.

Sarah and Abigail insist that they do not need help, but with no other family to contact, social services are left with no choice but to find long-term care for Abigail, against their wishes. But Casey never gives up on a child in need, and she knows there must be another solution…

Includes a sample chapter of Sunday Times bestseller Trafficked.

Having just finished reading this book, it highlights the fact that children don't need to be in abusive situations to desperatly need help. A truly great story from a truly great writer.

HASH(0x99457e64) étoiles sur 5 Taking care of Mummy... 26 février 2015
Par Joanna M - Publié sur
Format: Broché
When foster carers Casey and Mike Watson get the call regarding 9-year-old Abby, it's quite unlike any other case they've experienced. Abby comes from a loving home, and is a well-mannered, helpful little girl. However, the single mother who has raised her suffers from multiple sclerosis, and things have taken a turn for the worse.

It quickly becomes clear that Sarah can no longer care for Abby...and just as quickly, it also becomes clear that Sarah has not taken care of Abby for quite some time. Incredibly, social workers visiting the house discover countless instructions and physical adaptations throughout, all geared toward helping a young child singlehandedly run a household.

The Watsons soon learn just what their role in Abby's life will be...convincing her that it's NOT her job to take care of adults. Of course, that's easier said than done, given the way the little girl has been living for most of her life. But it's clear that Abby must learn to adapt, as the caretaker role has begun to take a toll on her both physically and mentally.

As always, Watson details an intriguing story about the foster care system, and it's clear she and her family truly want to make a difference in a child's life.

I think I've read every one of Casey's books so far- she needs to write faster! Almost feel like I know her and her family. All her stories hold my interest, and each child she fosters has their own unique challenges. Was not disappointed with this book.

I loved this book. While the story was heartbreaking for much of the book, the ending was far more hopeful then might have been expected. A wonderful insight into the highs and lows of foster caring.
