Review

The girl with two lives

20 January 2021
Written by: Angela Hart
Review by: Christine Lewis
Genre: Non-fiction

Book recounting the story of a foster carer (Angela) and one of ‘her children’ (Danielle) as they work through her time with Angela and her husband Richard.

Set in England (you never really find out where actually, just close to London. The story takes you on roller coaster of concern as Angela and Richard try to deal with Danielle and her many issues. Danielle arrived as an emergency placement and shows disruptive behaviour which Angela and Richard work through to help Danielle try to have a new start.

This book left me feeling really sad for all parties involved . There were no winners however acceptance was gained.
