While out on the s Mystery surrounding Zadie's behavior This part one true story of Zadie Hassan, A 13-year-old from a Muslim family, carries with it a mystery as to what her past was actually like. Author Rosie Lewis, who is a foster care parent and has taken in many children from different situations, shares the story of when Zadie entered their home and what the family is experiencing since her arrival. This teenager was found by two police officers after she ran away from home two days prior. While out on the streets she slept there and this brought shame on the family. Zadie was under a section 20 voluntary care order where parents retain full rights and could demand at any time that she be returned to them. Sadie lives with her two brothers and father and shared with Rosie that she was five years old when she last seen her mother. Though Rosie is adept at taking care of foster children, Rosie will present a unique bag of challenges with the mystery surrounding Zadie. She would arrive very shy and withdrawn hovering in the doorway with her head lowered and hands ringing over themselves. As time unfolded she would exhibit compulsive behaviors playing with her food, counting under her breath, and concerned with excessive cleanliness resulting in chapped hands. Her pajamas would be discovered with pebbles sewn in them where she claims her brother did this so she will sleep on her side rather than her stomach. Though Rosie would try to penetrate her invisible wall through communication, she would not seem to be able to discover just what occurred in her past and whether or not it was safe for her to return to her family. Rosie would discover that she looked at pornographic material on the Internet and would confront her about this. He Rosie reflects on Zadie: "And yet every time I look at her I couldn't shake the nagging worry that she was in trouble and I should be doing something about it. I couldn't put my finger on why I felt that way. " It was arranged to have Zadie meet her brother Chit at a neutral place while Rosie would stay in the background. The dialogue and expression on her brothers face and Zadie's body language would reveal there is tension within the relationship. Toward the end of the story Rosie will be awakened by Zadie's screaming nightmare and when she approached her the findings would startle her. It is a true story that will keep you glued to the pages from start to finish. Each page begs the reader for more and more information and because of this, it could be read in one sitting. Excellently written, I give it five stars for the gripping reality presented and for the transparency with which it is told. The next two parts in this book will begin to reveal the hidden mystery surrounding Zadie's life.

    Compassion tested Excellent story of the true thoughts and feelings of a foster caregiver. Written in a way that allows the reader to be present not only in each situation but also in the mind of the caregiver. While not much is revealed about the foster girl's situation, the caregiver 's mindset lends itself to the possibility of hope.

    Sad but true. Foster care is a necessary evil in today's life. Most times there is a happy ending for the unfortunate child but getting there is often traumatic. Also the Foster parents is traumatized by witnessing and learning about the case. Often questions of WHY or HOW could birth parents do what they do? Rosie Lewis really nailed it. Sad but true.
