Summary

'Mum and Dad. Gone?' asked Louisa.
'Yes,' I nodded. 'They're gone.'

After a horrific car crash, thirteen-year-old Louisa is left fighting for her life in hospital. She wakes to find that her loving, happy family has been shattered overnight, with both of her parents now dead. With no one to care for her, Louisa is entirely alone.

Britain's most-loved foster carer Maggie Hartley is called in to help Louisa cope with her devastating new life. Can Maggie find a way to bond with Louisa, overwhelmed with anger and grief? Or will she regret making decisions that will affect both her and Louisa for the rest of their lives?

A true story of hope from Sunday Times bestselling author Maggie Hartley, a foster carer for over 20 years.

Well done Louisa.

I loved this book. Louisa has appeared in all of the other books in this collection so it is great that we have finally got her story. Obviously we know how she came to be with Maggie thanks to the other books in the collection however i never susspected just how massive her challenges actually were not just losing her parents but also her own recovery. What a brave young woman she is and now i know her story i have massive respect for how she faught back to have a life. This story could have been so different

amazing

After reading all of Maggie hartleys stories I always heard about Louisa. we always hear about how her parents died when she was younger but we never appreciated how much she had been through. It was amazing to hear her story and made me really appreciate how far Louisa had come :)

sweet

A bittersweet book, fascinating to read the story of a Visa and her recovery, a very sad, and sweet book all in one, had to stop reading at points, but absolutely loved this book, the strength of Maggie, hard to hold Louisa together, didn’t go unnoticed
