of how when was 14 her sister attempted suicide by jumping in front of a trainAlthough this is part of a series of books dedicated to celebrating the 150th anniversary of the London Underground this book uses the sense of a train journey as a metaphor for taking an emotional journey with the oung people who contributed to this book Camila is the founder of Kids Company a charity devoted to helping children from deprived backgrounds and here she addresses the real life issue of underground children who go unnoticed by most people in societyThroughout the book several teenagers involved with Kids Company tell their own stories and it makes for very uncomfortable reading because of the harrowing subject matter As I read the book I felt that I was being educated on the very real issues of children being homeless because they ran away from their families being neglected and abused getting involved with drugs and gangs and even forced into prostitution The book even discusses in detail what effects physical abuse can have on the mental health of childrenWhile this book had almost nothing to do with the London Underground except for a short account of a girl s journey on the underground where she talks about occasionally eating peoples leftover food because she is homeless and hungry I found this the underground where she talks about occasionally eating peoples leftover food because she is homeless and hungry I found this to be compelling reading and it does a very good of highlighting very serious issues that need to be addressed There are a few moments where Camila seems to get up on her soapbox mostly because of her anger that not enough is getting done about the issues she addresses but overall I thought this was well compiled and painstakingly researched A heartbreaking and informative account of what life is like for London s underground children who exist in extreme poverty The book includes explanatory science and psychological research to back up Camila Batmanghelidjh s doctrine of compassionate care for the children society ignores Reuired reading for anyone studying or working within the fields of sociology psychology politics neuroscience or childcare Or anyone who wants to understand the reasons why Kanji et Kana : Manuel et lexique des 2141 caractres officiels de l'criture japonaise suivi de caractres composs formant un vocabulaire de base de plus de 12 000 mots young people in one of the world s richest cities are struggling to survive their daily lives A brilliantly concise heart rending fact driven take on the problem ofouth homelessness and problem children Hugely informative and straight to the point this book will make readers acknowledge that we are all part of the problem The way Batmanghelidjh picks apart stereotypes and gives a voice to children who have slipped through the net is candid and cutting So short that everyone should make a little time to read this book and come away informed about one of the biggest social crises in modern Britain.
