Eleven-year-old Olivia Brown has been in care since she was five. She has just been asked to leave her eighteenth placement.
Her new home is a secluded farmhouse, centuries old, where she slowly bonds with her foster family. But the house holds dark secrets. The danger is real - but does it come from the twisted mind of a very disturbed child?

I am manager of a charity and really enjoy listening to memoirs and political diaries which unlikely to get round to reading.
Not very enjoyable read. Was interesting perspective of young girl moving round various foster homes but I think this might have worked better as a book.
Hard-hitting, heart-jerking, brilliant
Olivia makes me want to help kids like her
Yes! The whole time we are getting to know Olivia we are trying to decide if we are going to trust her or not, and somewhere in the fighting and fear you realise that you love her whether or not she does turn out to be the anti-hero
Nothing! The narrator was wonderful!
Buy it. Listen. You're welcome!
