The fourth title from Sunday Times bestselling author Casey Watson. Eight-year-old Spencer takes himself to social services and demands to be taken into care. It's a desperate act, a cry for help, but his parent's reaction -- good riddance -- speaks volumes. Casey's hackles are immediately up for this poor child. Spencer is the middle child of four siblings. His parents claim all their other kids are "normal" and that Spencer was born "vicious and evil". Casey and her family are disgusted kids aren't born evil, they get damaged. Although when vigilante neighbours start to take action and their landlord threatens eviction, Casey is stretched to the limits, trying desperately to hold on to this boy who causes so much pain and destruction.
