Teenage Voices From The Foster Care System
There are more than 450,000 children living in foster care. The Heart Knows Something Different collects over three dozen personal narratives by young writers, ages 15 to 20, and provides an insider's account of growing up in "the system." It takes us into a world largely hidden from public view, and attests to "the mix of pain and fear, and sometimes hope, and sometimes even happiness, that the foster care experience involves.
This book will provide readers with startling insight into the foster care system, from all angles. It would also be a wonderful gift for other kids in foster care whose own experiences and emotions might be echoed in the compelling narratives here."
