She has been in foster care several times already and when she discovered she was pregnant, and refused to have an abortion, her mother threw her out of the house.Casey and her family instantly form a strong bond with Emma’s baby Roman, but dealing with Emma’s behaviour and constant lack of responsibility is a far tougher challenge. And before long Casey finds she’s doing something she never thought she would – covering up for Emma’s shortcomings as she allows her personal involvement to colour her judgement.But the more Casey gets to know Emma the more she’s convinced that with the right help and guidance this lonely and unsupported girl can become a good mother to her gorgeous little boy. That’s what makes it even harder when Casey and her family have to make a stark choice: to hold on to Emma or look after Roman; to help a teenage girl desperate to turn her life around, or offer an innocent baby a safe home and much-needed good start in life....

    Reading books like this reminds me why in my role as an ECE (Early Childhood Educator) it is so important I refrain from judgement on the parents/families I work with and focus on building relationships to help support the child(ren). That being said, I was disappointed in Casey’s actions in this story. I have read many of her books and usually find her to be intelligent and able to predict future needs. ***SPOILERS***Casey and Mike allowed Emma to spend time with Taz without any adult supervision, even after it becomes clear Emma is consuming alcohol at 14/15 with her 19/20 year old partner. Despite already having a child with him; no one speaks to Emma about birth control, even after Emma blatantly states that the two of them plan to continue to have more children.Yet, Casey is shocked, shocked! To discover that Emma is pregnant once again. Very disappointing Casey, you clearly were too emotionally involved to think clearly.

    What an amazing and inspirational book of a 14 year old Mum overcoming life's difficulties.

    This is the 3rd and earliest book I have read by this author. The other two were emotionally brilliant and this is no exception.This has some genuinely heartbreaking moments and passages. It also contains some very dark humour that you might read twice to check. It plays out better than most fiction too.I would recommend this or any of Casey's books to anyone. They are a pleasure to read and cry over.

    I am really into these books lately, the true stories of the tragedies that people face. It seems strange but I have so many of these depressing books lying around that it is starting to border on obsession! My husband finds it bizarre, and I don't really blame him. Why I want to read these, I don't know. They certainly aren't light-hearted readings. Be that as it may, it is interesting to me to see how people cope in different circumstances, and how foster carers do their jobs and try to make the best out of situations not only for themselves and their own family, but for the foster child in question. This one was hard to get through because I just felt like virtually smacking the girl because she seemed so immature and helpless...but then I remembered she was a teenager, only 14 at the beginning, with a baby. I guess you can't expect too much in those cases, so after I got past the initial anger toward the immaturity, I realized how sad a story it was for that poor girl and her child. I was surprised that there is actually a happy ending. I am a bit cynical, and I tend to notice that the endings in these types of books are less than ideal, or you are not aware of what exactly happens after they leave the foster care. I am glad that this one turned out to be one of the better endings, and I hope everyone in question is living a nice life. I just wish there were ways to prevent these circumstances from happening in the first place.

    I really enjoyed reading this book, I think I've finally found a series of books to get hooked on. I found reading a true story really intrigued me and I will definately be reading more of these books. This is the first book in a long time that I've read that I've finished in a few hours, can't wait to read the others. I often found my self thinking about how Emma would feel reading this book herself, seeing how badly she behaved and the trouble she put casey through.

    Another amazing story by Casey Watson, I love her style of writing as it is very similar to my other favourite author, Cathy Glass! This story is a sad one which shows how patterns can repeat themselves in families when it comes to teen pregnancy and the difficulties surrounding it. brought me near tears at several points

    Another insight into the world of foster caring. The families that look after these children deserve a medal. It's bad enough having troubles with your own teenagers without having to take on other peoples children.Well written, keeps you wanting to go on and read the next chapter.

    Though this book was filled with laughter and tears, I was kind of in a reading slump. My heart warmed to Casey as she tried to help Emma and Roman. It just wasn't my kind of book. I do recommend this book but I didn't really enjoy it.

    Well Done Casey. You are an inspiration to us all. Opening your home and your heart to abused and neglected children in need of love and guidance. Turning their lives around. Love this story and the happy ending :)

    A Last KissIf your a teenager looking to kill your childhood, then have children really young. This way they can have a future worth looking forward to. That is, if they don't get killed first.
