Publisher's Summary

A dramatic and remarkable narrative of an extraordinary teacher's determination, from the author of the Sunday Times bestsellers The Tiger's Child and One Child. Torey Hayden faced six emotionally troubled kids no other teacher could handle - three recent arrivals from battle-torn Northern Ireland, badly traumatized by the horrors of war; an eleven-year-old boy, who only knew life inside an institution; an excitable girl, aggressive and sexually precocious at the age of eight; and seven-year-old Leslie, perhaps the most hopeless of all, unresponsive and unable to speak. But Torey's most daunting challenge turns out to be Leslie's mother, a stunning young doctor who soon discovers that she needs Torey's love and help just as much as the children. Just Another Kid is a beautiful illustration of nurturing concern, not only for a few emotionally disturbed children, but for one woman facing a personal battle.

Usual Torey story

Would you try another book from Torey Hayden and/or Tara Ochs?

I enjoy her books and the narration.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

Not sure.. Torey's books are non fiction, so they are her stories..

What three words best describe Tara Ochs’s performance?

Good narration and character reading

Did Just Another Kid inspire you to do anything?

No, but I enjoy the fact that children are helped.

Any additional comments?
