By Hinton, Hilde
Miss Kaye works at The Institute. A place for the damaged, the dangerous, the not-quite rights. Everyone had different strategies to deal with those who lived there. Some barked orders. Some negotiated tirelessly. Miss Kaye found that simply being herself was mostly the right thi...ng to do. She would try not to smile, but her eyes did. Susie was seven, and already she knew she'd had her fill of character building. She'd lie between her Holly Hobby sheets thinking how slowly birthdays come around, but how quickly change happens. One minute her Dad was saying that the family needed to move back to the city and then, Shazam, they were there. Her mum didn't move to the new house with them. And she hated going to her mother's flat. She never knew who her mum would be. Or who would be there. When their paths connect, Miss Kaye and Susie will know that character building is often code for trauma and surviving requires patience. An unforgettable story of loneliness, isolation and finding you way. Heart-wrenching, wise and wryly funny, this novel will make you kinder to those who are lost.Read more
