    One thought on “The Boy No One Loved”

    1. Nascido nas Trevas***Contém Spoilers essenciais à elaboração da review. Porém, nada capaz de arruinar a leitura***Num desses dias em que a mãe o deixara sozinho em casa com os 2 irmãos e o cão, o pequeno Justin achou por bem, incendiar a casa. Assim que sentiu o calor das labaredas, o cão tentou salvar-se, mas Justin que não o tinha em grande conta, besuntou-lhe o focinho de combustível para que ardesse mais rapidamente!Quanto aos irmãos mais novos, não chegou a besuntar-lhes as fra [...]

    2. "I was so nervous that I actually felt physically sick. I'd never been so nervous about a new job, ever. Probably because this this was going to be like no other new job. Because it wasn't just a job, it was a whole lifestyle. This was not nine till five, this was twenty-four-seven." I am not going to say this book was amazing, I am not going to say this book was good, I will say that this book was an eye-opener. One that made me feel more appreciative of all that I have.This book was written as [...]

    3. Casey and Mike Watson train to become foster parents for particularly difficult children. They may have been trained, but what could prepare a couple for a child whose behaviour can be more than merely ‘challenging.?’ And then his past is gradually revealed and our hearts bleed for Justin. This book had me in tears, and yet there was warmth and laughter as well. I became totally absorbed, and find it difficult to praise it highly enough – especially as it is not the sort of book I am usual [...]

    4. 3.5 starsAlthough I will probably remember this story for a long while and I did shed a few tears, I felt like I wanted more all the way through. I don't know what "more" would consist of in this instant, but it left me for wanting. I simply felt like all the horrible things this boy went through- seeing as I am most definitely a cryer- should have inspired more than a few tears. Overall, I just like that stories like this exist to read about because the very-real-problems do exist as a reality [...]

    5. I can only describe this book as alright. The story is interesting enough and some of it is outright heartbreaking. I found myself unable to find the narrator Casey very likable. I found her too sensitive for her job and the way she managed things a little unbelievable. The book in general I guess was just not written in a way that particularly captured my attention. The story itself was quite an interesting one however.

    6. The story of Justin is heartbreaking, and although there's a reasonably happy ending, it still left me feeling sad.The book itself I didn't enjoy. As one reviewer said, "It is a poorly written story thinly veiling the author's self-congratulatory style." I have to agree, just a little. I didn't like the author very much at all. Syrupy and almost too good to be true.Also, there were quite a few typos. Incorrect uses of me and I, me and him. Incorrect words, down instead of done, desks instead of [...]

    7. I worked as a child welfare worker, and so Casey Watson's books call to me. Casey works in England. They have a very different program for helping abused children. They have a team approach, with meetings and communications with all the people who have worked with a child. They have counselors who take a child to give them someone to talk with, and help them overcome their problems. There was a special helper in school to help the child with problems they face there.Casey and her husband, Mike, [...]

    8. 'We're hungry,' his brother kept repeating. 'We're hungry, Justin. Please find us some food.' Justin was just five years old; his brothers two and three. Their mother, a heroin-addict, had left them hungry and alone, while she went to get her next fix. Later that day, after trying to burn down the family home, Justin was taken into care. Justin was taken into care at the age of five after deliberately burning down his family home. Six years on, after 20 failed placements, Justin arrives at Casey [...]

    9. This is a story of a young boy that was not believed by adults, that would have been able to help him, when he told them of the abuse he had experienced while living with his mother. Instead of dealing with these allegations and helping him, he kept getting pawned off to yet another placement in the foster system. It wasn't until he was eleven years old and placed in a last-chance foster home, with this author, that someone listened to him and gave him the tools to start working through old woun [...]

    10. It was great to finally read about Justin- the boy who started it all. Casey references him in nearly all of her books and it's clear he has a very special place in her heart. Justin seems like a real troublemaker, but the longer he is with the Watsons, the more his past is revealed. What a heartbreaking past it is. At times, Justin seemed much older than his 11 years, at other times, much younger. It was very interesting to read about him processing the hurt of his past and also, how Casey deal [...]

    11. I'm a 22 year old college student who is currently going to school to work in this type of environment working with foster children being able to help them. I chose this book as a "must read" to gain some insight into what it's like for those children. And being the softy that I am did make it hard to read some of the pages but made my want to help increase. I got props to Casey and the time she spend with Justin and I know she must have been a great foster mother to many others after him. I loo [...]

    12. The story of this book left me in tears from the first to the last page, it's impossible to remain indifferent to Justin's story, there are several passages in the book that are terrible, a real punch in the stomach. I can't judge Justin attitudes and never judge Casey attitudes.A story that unfortunately there are many out there like. Loved and cried a lot. My review in portuguese in my blog: missmargotdominique.p

    13. Wonderfully written. Sad tale of what children have to go through sometimes and what their life in "the system" is like. A new concept in fostering children with issues and the caring way to bring them back to a fulfilling life.This book says so much about how a child is treated will determine their place in society.

    14. So sad that Justin had such a horrible childhood. Glad that he ended up with Casey & Mike Watson as his foster parents who took the time and made the effort to get to the root of the horrors of Justin's physical and emotional abuse.Look forward to reading more of her books.

    15. O que este miúdo passou é algo de inacreditável!!!!Lembrou-me muito os livros da autora Torey Hayden que devorava mal saíam. Um livro simples com uma grande história para contar.

    16. realy quite sad circumstances but a fantastic read overall you felt as though you were there. e's got a lovely really enjoyable style of writing just flows:).

    17. SadSadso sad and heartbreaking. Casey is an amazing person and this was a book that is worth your time and consideration

    18. ***SPOILERS AHEAD***I have so much to say about this book, I don’t even know where to start. Mostly it’s about my opinion about Justin’s whole situation and how I feel about the welfare system, more than it is about the book.Firstly, I have to say I hugely admire the patience which Casey and Mike had in dealing with Justin and his outbursts and general terrible behavior. Though, I don’t think Casey is as noble as she makes out to be. The start of the book (after the first chapter), as we [...]

    19. I came across this book just randomly, sitting on one of the shelves of my library. The title of the book does total justice to the story embarked within those pages inside. The book is written in a way that it could seep into your mind quite unnoticeably and make you cringe when you come across what Justin, the protagonist and the center of the book, has gone through. I never would have known how it feels to be given up by your very loved ones have I hadn't got a chance to read this book. It re [...]

    20. Took a long time to finally finish this book as I kept putting it down for days before picking it back up again. It was an ok-ish story, not the best ive read before but not the worst either. Found it quite boring in parts and it didn't hook me at all.

    21. Eye opening storyGood foster families are very rare and hard to find. Casey Watson's account of her work with Justin is very interesting, heartwarming, and inspires admiration for her and her family. They cared enough to not give up on Justin.

    22. Couldn't put this book down. This is the first one of Casey's books I've read and my heart really went out to justin as well as Casey and mike when he had to move on.

    23. After reading a lot of Cathy Glass, I decided to try my hand at another big name in the field of foster writing: Casey Watson. Casey and her husband Mike are specialist foster carers, specialising in difficult and emotionally damaged children. This book covers the story of their first foster child, Justin.Reading this, I felt as though Justin was let down by a system that was supposed to protect him. How could they justify leaving his brothers in the home environment, or allowing Justin to keep [...]

    24. I support this kind of positive writing about foster carer, it helps with new foster carers or foster-carer-to-be or anyone who was interested in how social services and fostering goes about what to expect and what to prepare.If you know me, you'll know I'm stingy with stars, and I'm sorry to say I give this 3 stars because I support foster carers, not because I like the book. I was kinda disappointed in this book.I find the writing is all over the places and there are at least a dozen times I w [...]

    25. Przeraża mnie fakt, że ta historia jest prawdziwa. Często zdarza mi się czytać tego typu książki, ale zawsze jest to tak samo wstrząsające i poruszające. Nie potrafię sobie nawet wyobrazić jak czuć mógł się bohater tej książki podczas tego wszystkiego co działo się w jego życiu. Cieszę się, że trafił na takich ludzi jak Cathy Watson, ale jak wiele jest dzieci, które tak nie trafią Poczułam się bardzo zdołowana i przybita po przeczytaniu tej książki. Na kolejną pr [...]

    26. A true story of a damaged abused little boy who goes to live with specialist foster parents. The book is written by the foster mother and details his journey with them and tells us the outcome of the placement too.Graphic descriptions of child abuse, moving, upsetting at times but very interesting to read

    27. Brilliant writing. Makes your heart go out for Justin for the past he had and for Casey for the strong pillar she is to Justin. Some narrations make you cry and feel sad/happy for both.
