Charlie Carter needs a job. He can’t go on scraping a living as a nightclub bouncer, but what else is there in the one horse town of Bovington?
Judging by the vacancies in the paper, not a lot.
Until he spies a poorly written ad for a care staff vacancy: working with emotionally troubled teens.
“No experience necessary,” it says. “Immediate start”.
He figures it sounds easy enough. He’s been dealing with difficult people all his life. Difficult kids couldn’t be much worse.
From the personal experience of first time author Kimberly Oakes comes "Who Cares", a scathing satire of the British care industry as seen from the ground level. With wit, gritty dialogue and outrageous humor, Kimberly tears down the curtain and takes us on a disturbing tour through the inner workings of "Better Beginnings Ltd."
Charlie soon discovers what a misnomer the company's title is and that the troubled kids in its care are the very least of his worries next to a staff of ignorant gossips, "former" criminals and a penny pinching boss all out to exploit the system to their own ends.
They certainly don't.
