Thrown Away Child is a memoir covering Louise Allen's abusive childhood in a foster home, how she survived - using her love of art as a sanctuary - and how she hopes to right old wrongs now by fostering children herself and campaigning for the improvement of foster care services.
It is a compelling and inspirational story. This book gives a voice to the many children who grew up unhappily in care.
