Careless by Kirsty Capes


One of my absolute favourites of 2021 – I am obsessed with how good this is and it’s something I wish I could have written! This is a distinctively tender and smart perspective of a representation we are in desperate need of; young life in foster care. This is a heartfelt book that takes those years of intense and complicated adolescence seriously and forces the reader to interrogate their own privilege. A rare gem trickled with nostalgia, the most beautiful female friendship and a sense that no matter what happens in life, you will always find the right people to raise you up – Emily
