Oh my goodness, what a dramatic debut, the writing is absolutely superb. This wasn't the story I thought it was going to be from the synopsis. It is emotionally draining but you can't put it down. There were many moments of time that I couldn't breathe, and there were others when I was crying or laughing and agreeing with 5 year-old Tonya, who is a total character and has a way with words!

As Tonya fiercely resists Mummy’s attempts to make her into the perfect child, Kim is demonised by the media as a ‘scummy mummy’, who deserves to have her other children taken too.

Though they are worlds apart, Mummy and Kim have more in common than they could possibly imagine. But it is five-year-old Tonya who is caught in the middle…
