Ward of the State by Milo Larsen


Ward of the State by Milo Larsen

Tom Packard has been repeatedly abandoned: first by his father; then when his mother is murdered; then when his grandfather denies him his birthright; then when his aunt, who took him in, dies; and again when his grandfather denies him his birthright a second time; and finally by the state orphanage. The child welfare service takes charge of Tom and places him in the state reform school. When Tom protests, he is told, When you are a ward of the state, the state makes decisions for you. Now Tom has to develop special attitudes to survive this situation.

It gives a chance to read about new titles, invites comments from all kinds of readers and is run by such a nice bunch of book lovers.

I love the newsletter with reviews of all the new books coming out. Can't wait to open it when it arrives in my inbox.

My favourite thing about is the 'like for like' page this has really introduced me to some good reads! That and lots of honest reviews.
