Just Another Kid – Torey Hayden

Just Another Kid: Each was a child no one could reach – until one amazing teacher embraced them all by Torey Hayden

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’.

In this memoir Torey Hayden faced six emotionally troubled kids no other teacher could handle – three recent arrivals from battle-torn Northern Ireland, badly traumatised 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.
