A dramatic and remarkable narrative of an extraordinary teacher's determination, from the author of the Sunday Times bestsellers The Tiger's Child and One Child. Torey Hayden faced six emotionally troubled kids no other teacher could handle - three recent arrivals from battle-torn Northern Ireland, badly traumatized by the horrors of war; an eleven-year-old boy, who only knew life inside an institution; an excitable girl, aggressive and sexually precocious at the age of eight; and seven-year-old Leslie, perhaps the most hopeless of all, unresponsive and unable to speak. But Torey's most daunting challenge turns out to be Leslie's mother, a stunning young doctor who soon discovers that she needs Torey's love and help just as much as the children. Just Another Kid is a beautiful illustration of nurturing concern, not only for a few emotionally disturbed children, but for one woman facing a personal battle.

I have all her books in paper back & just love torey Hayden as a writer the audio book didn't disappoint was read beautifully & if you love these sort of books & stories you will love torey Hayden well done
very good and interesting book it flows well and is easy to read. I liked that there were six very different children in the class. I think Leslie was my favourite child. it was narrated well. The narrator spoke very clearly.
starts out slower than her other books at keeping my attention/interest. almost returned it but glad I didn't.
"Usual Torey story"
I enjoy her books and the narration.
Not sure.. Torey's books are non fiction, so they are her stories..
Good narration and character reading
No, but I enjoy the fact that children are helped.
