About The Book
Two sisters alone Sophie and Kelsey have always had each other. When their mum is diagnosed with cancer and their dad fails to step up, they’re forced to move into the care system. But Sophie knows they’ll be okay as long as she’s there to protect her sister.
When Kelsey is found a foster family and Sophie can’t join her, Sophie’s left in an unsafe Situation in the home, forced to do things against her will. Finding her own foster family feels like a relief, but it’s short lived when her trust in her new foster parents is betrayed.
With nowhere to turn, Sophie finds herself homeless. But when she finds her new street family, Sophie joins the working girls and her new identity as Sapphire is complete. It’s a hard life working the streets, especially when those around her look to take advantage, but can the dream of one day finding Kelsey keep her going?
Heather Burnside is back with this completely unputdownable, heart-racing series, perfect for all fans of Kimberley Chambers and Martina Cole.
Sapphire’s story is the final installment in the Working Girls series. Which I will be sad to say goodbye to.
Sophie and Kelsy are unexpectedly left abandoned by their father and finding life hard in the care system.
Poor Sophie (Sapphire) has a rougher time than her sister.
Awful to think that this situation unfortunately does happen in the real world.
This is a heartbreaking read which Heather has written fantastically and you will root for Sapphire to be able to turn her life around.
Well worthy of 5 stars.
