Overview

From bestselling author and teacher Mary Maccracken comes the engaging and inspiring story of five troubled children who she fought to bring back from the brink

Joey is the class clown, but alone proves to be an intensely dark seven-year old who still can’t read.
Eric is a kindergartener, left withdrawn and speechless by the horrors he’s witnessed at home.
Alice appears the model fifth year child, but secretly scores zero on every maths test.
Charlie, an eight-year old, struggles to understand his place in the world, leaving him confused and alone.
Ben comes from a comfortable life at home, but has been called stupid so many times he now believes it.

These are some of the learning-disabled children who were in deep trouble until Mary MacCracken, an extraordinary therapist and teacher, works her magic with them and transforms their lives. Her heart-warming book is a testament to her talent, compassion and love.
