***** A TRUE STORY BY THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR MAGGIE HARTLEY
When Lexie, Amelie and their big brother Leo come to live with foster carer Maggie Hartley, it’s clear that Leo has always been the main provider for his little sisters. But the weight of responsibility on Leo’s young shoulders is starting to take its toll. Painfully thin and barely eating, Maggie struggles to cope with Leo’s increasingly unstable mental health. And when the children’s alcoholic mother abandons them completely, the cracks begin to deepen.
Leo’s little sisters are the only family he has left in the world. But when Social Services begin to look at rehoming Lexie and Amelie without their troubled older brother, the siblings’ whole world comes crashing down.
Can Maggie fight to keep the children together? Or will Leo lose the only love he’s ever known?
