about

"A heartwarming book full of tenderness." --Library Journal

From the bestselling author of One Child, the true story of four problem children and one extraordinary teacher.

They were all "just somebody else's kids"—four problem children placed in Torey Hayden's class because nobody knew what else to do with them. They were a motley group of children in great pain: a small boy who echoed other people's words and repeated weather forecasts; a beautiful seven-year-old girl whose brain was damaged by savage parental beatings; an angry and violent ten-year-old who had watched his stepmother murder his father; a shy twelve-year-old who had been cast out of Catholic school when she became pregnant. But they shared one thing in common: a remarkable teacher who would never stop caring—and who would share with them the love and understanding they had never known and help them become a family.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very touching It is heartbreaking to imagine children going through any kind of suffering but it is encouraging to see there are still others who care about them. Tori is a very compassionate woman and we should all strive to be like her. I look forward to reading more of her stories.
