This is a good story . There are now quite a lot of books based on the experiences of foster parents caring for at risk children . Casey Watson has written several and so has Cathy Glass . I found this book not as well written as it could have been . There are several passages of dialogue which tend to be a bit banal . I would like to have read a bit more in the epilogue about how ''Bella'' is coping now . But for these minor blemishes I would have given it 5 stars .
