I really liked this book even though it is a painful read. By that I mean to read of horrible abuse is painful--also reading about lovely twins who were born with fetal alcohol syndrome and will perhaps never reach their full potential is painful. But Hayden's writing is easy to read and she explains what she is doing as she moves along in her teaching/therapy of each child. She discovers that one child in her "special ed" class is actually gifted. I liked that she followed many of the children until they were much improved or at least placed in safe places. This is a much better book than some I have read by other authors. It is full of information.
