Publisher's Summary

When 16-year-old Jess arrives on foster carer Maggie Hartley's doorstep with her newborn son, Jimmy, she has nowhere else to go. Arriving straight from the hospital, having just given birth, Jess is like a rabbit caught in the headlights. Scared, alone, and practically a child herself, she is overwhelmed with the responsibility of caring for a newborn without the support of a loving family or her beloved boyfriend.
With social services threatening to take baby Jimmy into care, Jess knows that Maggie is her only chance of keeping her son. Maggie can see that Jess loves her boyfriend and wants to be a good mother to her son. Can Maggie help Jess learn to become a mum? Will the family ever be allowed to live together?

A very interesting and engaging fostering story

I loved this book and finished it in 2 days, feeling a sense of loss afterwards because I enjoyed it so much and the story had ended. Maggie writes very well, describing the highs and lows of fostering . The narrator was excellent also. I listened to 3 of Maggie's books in 6 days and loved them all. Please write some more, Maggie!
