9780099403470: You Can't Kiss It Better

When the story opens, Megan who is a foster mother, has two children in her charge: Anna a 12 year old who is, 'rather given to magical thinking' and Raymond who is 10 and never speaks to anyone. Both children have sad broken backgrounds; Anna (in her fourth foster home) fantasises that her debt-ridden, alcoholic mother is a famous actress and Raymond's totally unreliable mother rarely comes to see him. Sam, a frightened rabbit of a child, rejected by his family because of lameness and pebble specs is the next to join the foster family and then Brent arrives dramatically in the middle of the night - a tearaway teenager totally beyond the control of his unimaginative, intellectual father. All four of Megan's foster children have difficulties to overcome in the house high above the river, where each one of them becomes involved in some way with the mysterious river woman. It is impossible not to be totally drawn into the pattern of Brent, Anna, Raymond and Sam's lives in this imaginative and compassionate novel.

Review:

Diana Hendry strides confidently into the territory occupied by Jacqueline Wilson and stakes her claim, a thought-provoking, satisfying read -- The Scotsman, 28 December 2002

Hendry's cast is distinct and believable, their voices convincing and demanding. An involving, thought-provoking and refreshingly genuine novel. -- Guardian Education, 14th January 2003

Set in Edinburgh this is a moving story with the atmosphere of real-life drama-documentary. -- Times Educational Supplement, 3rd January 2003

Book Description:

A compassionate exploration of the lives of four foster children.
