Long Way Home by Kate Shayler Long Way Home, Paperback (April 2001)

Kate Shayler grew up a "homes kid" in the 50's and 60's. Her memoir is more than just an account of her experience as an institutionalised white kid: it's a heartbreaking story of what happens to a child in the absence of emotional support and affection.
