Author Stephanie Baudetabout this book: There is a hidden army of children, some as young as six, who care for sick parents or other members of the family, often with little or no support. Certainly that was the case until recently.

This book grew from an article I read on the subject, as well as an intriguing story premise that if someone's life was so unbearable and they could not see a way out, being supposedly involved in a major disaster could enable them to disappear, supposed dead, and start anew.

Claire has been caring for her mum, who has MS, since she was nine. Now she is fifteen, and has almost no friends, and no life. No-one offers help or understanding.

When a chance to escape arises, she takes it, without thinking through the consequences, and begins a new life. But the old one haunts her and a so-called new friend takes advantage.

This is a book about responsibility, love and empathy. Claire's life has reached rock bottom, but it is also rocks that help her recover, too, when someone shows her how to purge herself of anger and guilt.

A book for girls of twelve plus.
