Reviews

"A lyrical, painful, and yet hope-filled memoir . . . Shattering, light-searching"Observer

"Searing . . . Unputdownable . . . My Name Is Why is authentic and beautiful, a potential game-changer in public attitudes to children raised in care. It's about bureaucratic cruelty, and what happens when love is absent. Don't miss it" The Times

"The most amazing thing about this book is that it's not made up. This actually happened. It is an incredible story" BENJAMIN ZEPHANIAH

"An extraordinary story" Sunday Times

"I have never read a memoir like it. A blistering account of a young life in the hands of neglectful authorities. It's a quest for understanding, for home, for answers. Grips like a thriller. Astounding" MATT HAIG
