She knows the ropes and can work the system to her advantage. She has also developed a torrential and witty verbal attacking defence. No one gets the better of Katie. But the childhood traumas which her behaviour is a response to dont go away.Josh is not like that at all. He is living with a single traumatic accidental event in his childhood for which he was held unfairly totally to blame. They are now sixteen and the same social worker is working separately with them both.Throughout their adventures during the few days of this story Katie makes all the running and gets them into all their scrapes- while Josh cant help himself but tag along, trying to restrain Katie from her worst excesses but apparently wanting to be with her even though he fails.Im confident that throughout this book you will chuckle, laugh out loud, gasp, cringe, be astonished, understanding and shed tears of joy and tears of sadness. At first I dont expect many of the readers to understand Katie. But given time she will find a place in your heart, just as she does in Joshs, and be in your memories for sometime to come.
