The Girl No One Wanted

The heartbreaking true story of a child with no home to call her own

Maggie Hartley,

The Girl No One Wanted: The heartbreaking true story of a child with no home to call her own
 
 

Eleven-year-old Leanne is out of control. Since being taken into care at the age of three, she has had over forty placements, each carer less able to cope with her anger and destruction than the last.

Late one night, foster carer Maggie Hartley receives a terrified call from Leanne's current placement, who has barricaded herself in her bathroom to protect herself from Leanne's rage. With the police on standby, Maggie manages to diffuse the situation but Leanne is left without a home once more.

Maggie is Leanne's only hope. But this is her last chance. If this placement fails, she will have to be put in a secure unit.

Then Leanne threatens Maggie with a knife and makes accusations against her that have to be investigated by Maggie's superiors. Where most others would simply walk away, Maggie refuses to give up on the little girl who's never known love.

Can Maggie get through to Leanne and begin to help her heal? Will the girl no one wanted find her forever home?
