My Name is Why

My Name Is Why by Lemn Sissay

What a good book. Think I read it in 36 hours as I couldn't put it down. Suppose it does help that it isn't a huge book.

Whilst some part of my brain would know or could guess most of how kids in care were treated to see it written down in official reports which are then juxtaposed with Lemn talking about the same incidents is really powerful. Ended up feeling really sorry for him and also happy he came through it all.
