Publisher's Summary

From best-selling author and teacher Mary Maccracken comes the engaging and inspiring story of five troubled children she fought to bring back from the brink.

Joey is the class clown but alone proves to be an intensely dark seven-year old who still can't read. Eric is a kindergartener left withdrawn and speechless by the horrors he's witnessed at home. Alice appears to be the model fifth-year child but secretly scores zero on every maths test. Charlie, an eight-year old, struggles to understand his place in the world, leaving him confused and alone. Ben comes from a comfortable life at home but has been called stupid so many times he now believes it.

These are some of the learning-disabled children who are in deep trouble until Mary MacCracken, an extraordinary therapist and teacher, works her magic with them and transforms their lives. Her heartwarming book is a testament to her talent, compassion, and love.

    Story
    "Excellent!"

    Truly gave me more insight into the mind of my 7 year old foster daughter, whom we are adopting. Her learning disabilities as well as her traumatic start to life can sometimes cause her to have behaviors that are truly difficult. Mary's stories truly inspire me to try to be more patient, understanding, and to try to make my home and my heart a "safe place for Rosi".

    "Excellent again"

    Yes, mary and her kids have enthralled me yet again.

    I loved all of the stories, and can't pick a favourite. You can't help but feel for them, and I truly hope that I can make as much difference to anyone as mary does for her kids.
