The second book in the series by foster mum Angela Hart.
The first time we ever saw Keeley was in a Pizza Hut. She was having lunch with her social worker.'Unfortunately Keeley's current placement is breaking down,' our support social worker, Sandy, had explained. 'We'd like to move her as soon as possible.'
We'd looked after more than thirty youngsters over the years, yet I never failed to feel a surge of excitement at the prospect of caring for another one.
Sandy began by explaining that Keeley was eight years old and had stayed with four sets of carers and been in full-time care with two different families.
'Why have the placements not worked out?' I asked.
'Both foster carers tell similar stories. Keeley's bad behaviour got worse instead of better as time went on. That's why we're keen for you to take her on, Angela. I'm sure you'll do a brilliant job.'
