I threw my hands across my face, waiting for the blow to follow. Nothing happened. I cautiously looked up from my hands to find my new foster carer staring at me with a look of horror and sadness.'
After years of abuse from her mother, 14 year old Amy is finally rescued and put into a foster placement with a woman she knows nothing about.

However after a lot of reassurance and patience, can Amy learn to trust an adult again? And will her carer finally get to know the full tragic story Amy has hidden all these years?
