Excellent Book

This provides an excellent overview of how the legal system affects children and families. It was very informational for me as a CASA, and adds great perspective to the overall system ad how it works.

Eye opening book

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

The book was extremely educational. I learned quite a bit about how horrible it is for children who get stuck in the foster care system. My heart broke for them and the social workers, case workers, CASA, judges, and families. A must read for anyone who has a goal to support children in the foster care system.


What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

It is a shame how children go through so much to adhere to the rules of the system, but the rules don't really seem to advocate for the children in a way they should. They are shuffled among case workers and CASA like they are simply a deck of cards. It is horrible.


Have you listened to any of P. J. Ochlan’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

First one.


Did Somebody Else’s Children inspire you to do anything?

Yes. I want to be a foster parent. But I wanted that before I read it. Now I want it more.
