Our customer reviews I read this book years ago ejpty it first came out and was very moved by it, I re-read it after seeing the movie and loved it even more. While the movie was good, the book has so much more detail and depth.
‘People should sort this mess’ | From the Guardian | The Guardian
It still astounds me that these children were treated in this fashion and it took so long for someone to tell their story.
It is a sad and very emotional book. This heartwrenching book is a must read, but be warned you will cry!
