When the police actually turn up on Ryan's doorstep, to take him away from his alcoholic mother and put him in care, his life crumbles.It's not long before Ryan has run away, taking a long bus ride back across the city, desperate to get back to the inner-city life he knows.

  • (3/5)
    This fictional story is told from the viewpoint of a young boy whose mother is an alcoholic. Ryan deals with the taunts and teasing of other boys by telling everyone that his father is a policeman when in reality he knows nothing about him. Ryan and his younger brother are taken into foster care after yet another angry outburst by Ryan. This short story is a quick read but I didn't enjoy it as much as the biographical stories written by Glass.
  • (5/5)
    This story had me totally hooked and I could not put it down. Very action packed and moving; giving one child's perspective on foster care. I would highly recommend this book.
