Just Another KidBook - 1988
From the bestselling author of One Child comes these remarkable stories of six traumatized children who appeared to have no hope for the future and the incredible teacher who would break through their shells.
Torey Hayden faced six emotionally troubled kids no other teacher could handle--three recent arrivals from battle-torn Northern Ireland, badly traumatized by the horrors of war; eleven-year-old Dirkie, who only knew of life inside an institution; excitable Mariana, aggressive and sexually precocious at the age of eight; and seven-year-old Leslie, perhaps the most hopeless of all, unresponsive and unable to speak.
With compassion, rare insight, and masterful storytelling, teacher Torey Hayden once again touches our hearts with her account of the miracles that can happen in her class of "special" children.

"Be careful that what you think of as tolerance doesn't become lack of judgment."
"It seems to be the way I think. I mean, not what I think, but how I think. And how I talk. Because, like sometimes, I just... it just... what? Stops? Freezes? Or maybe it was never there to begin with. I don't know. But I keep watching everyone else and they don't seem to have this kind of problem."
