Twelve-year-old Meg arrives at Maggie's after a fire destroys the children's home she's been living in. Terrified and having lost most of her possessions, Maggie must work hard to make the vulnerable young girl feel at home. But traumatised by the fire, and angry and vulnerable, having been put into care by her mother, Meg is lashing out at everyone around her.
Can Maggie reach this damaged little girl before it's too late? And before Meg's destructive behaviour puts Maggie's life - and the lives of the other children in her care - at risk?
A true story of hope from Sunday Times bestselling author Maggie Hartley, a foster carer for over 20 years.

A desperate cry for help
I did not enjoy the writing style. Emotionless. No connection with the characters. Reactions seemed fake.
