"I'm going to love my baby and give her lots of attention," Jade said. "I'll show my mum she's wrong."
Jade, 17, is pregnant, homeless, and alone when she's brought to live with Cathy. Jade is desperate to keep her baby, but, little more than a child herself, she struggles with the responsibilities her daughter brings.
Cathy is worried as soon as Jade arrives: she's never looked after a pregnant teenager before, but none of the mother-and-baby carers is free, and - 17 years old, seven months pregnant, and homeless - Jade is in a desperate situation.
But Jade doesn't want to listen or advice, and although her daughter is born safely it isn't long before Jade's in trouble with the police.
Cathy knows that Jade loves her daughter with all her heart, but will she be able to get through to Jade in time to make her realise just how much she might lose?

This book held my interest throughout: I really worried about the eventual outcome for this young mother and child....even for her younger boyfriend involved too. There was something so adorably human about the protagonist teen, namely -- It's not that Jade was necessarily lazy but she preferred to sleep in (when she could) and let the foster mother change and feed Baby, LOL. Ditto when she was sometimes napping. HAHA. Also, she drank alcohol and smoked, a definite no-no. I did complete the story many months ago so I forget a lot of the details but the plot certainly had twists & turns which made it exciting to follow. I think you will grow to care about what happens to all the main characters in this true story too. Personally, I really loved this audible.com book and I thought Denica Fairman was (and still is) a brilliant narrator/performance artist.
"Another brilliant read"
I found myself hoping that Jade would make the right decisions. You always feel part of the journey in all novels by Cathy Glass.
"A brilliant story to read and listen too."
