BOOK REVIEW THE FOSTER CHILD BY JENNY BLACKHURST

When child psychologist Imogen Reid takes on the case of 11-year-old Ellie Atkinson, she refuses to listen to warnings that the girl is dangerous.

Ellie was the only survivor of a fire that killed her family. Imogen is convinced she’s just a sad and angry child struggling to cope with her loss.

But Ellie’s foster parents and teachers are starting to fear her. When she gets upset, bad things seem to happen. And as Imogen gets closer to Ellie, she may be putting herself in danger…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Firstly a huge thank you to the headline team at bookbridgr for sending me this amazing book. I did squeal as I love this authors books so much! 

This intrigued me straight away with it’s striking cover and title.

I was a foster child so immediately caught my eye!

What can a foster child have done thats so bad?

Told in alternate narratives one a child one a adult.

One the counsellor one the client .

Each with their own pasts and stories to tell .

We watch their lives weave together.

What can go wrong ?

Surely people are just scaremongering with their wicked tales of the young girl being evil? ?

But as the clock ticks on the time she had at the foster home will cracks show the real Ellie?

Are people in danger ?

This was very thought provoking and chilling as you don’t quite know what you believe and would to trust.

As always Jenny writes with such skill and makes each story as addictive as the previous.

I wish her every success with this book.
