Fantastic read so far. Really enjoying Let Me Go as much as I normally do with books by Casey Watson. This part ends on a good cliffhanger and would definitely make the reader want to read the next part. Full review to come when I've finished all 3 parts

As always I love the books by the Foster carer Casey Watson and this did not disappoint. Follow the story of Harley and how Casey and her family tried to help her through her traumatic current life she is in..
 Recommended if you like true life accounts. 
 Thanks to #NetGalley for the advance copy.

I love Casey and Mike's fostering memoirs and it seems this one will be no different except I usually read them in one hit rather than in 3 parts!  On to part two..........

I absolutely love the idea of these books set out in parts.

This is chapters 1-8, 

I really enjoy reading Casey's stories, they are so well written.

This follows the heartbreaking story of 13 year old Harley who is placed with Casey and Mike for 28 days.

This leaves on a real cliffhanger so cannot wait to get stuck into part two. 

Full review after the next parts.

Gripped from start to finish and I really want to find out what has happened to Harley.

Harley, 13, has been sectioned under the mental health act after attempting suicide. After a 6-week stay in hospital? Casey and her husband Mike are called upon to take care of Harley on a short term placement.  We learn that Harley has a family – a widowed mother and an older sister, Milly, who left home with her long-term boyfriend just over a year ago. For the next
month, Casey and Mike are told there is no prospect of Harley going home as they need to work with her mother to ensure Harley can return safely. .

It’s not all plain soaking for Casey and Mike, on route to their home Harley tries to hurl herself out of the moving car, she tried a hunger strike, runs away and it becomes clear that Harley still needs help. on the way home, it quickly becomes clear she is in urgent need of help. For Casey and Mike it seems like zero progress is being made anywhere to help this poor girl, but battle on they will... hoping Harley’s threats to kill herself don’t succeed.

Loved it so far!

I was so pleased to be given the opportunity to have an early read of this much anticipated new book from Casey Watson.  Thank you to the publishers and Netgalley.

The book starts upbeat as Mike and Casey have returned twins Annie and Oscar to their mum and dad. The parents had been in hospital following a fire at their home. 

It's lovely coming back to this-the last book I read I was a bit bored with (not by this author), anyway, back to favourite easy reading with Casey Watson's latest.

Casey always sounds so honest and such a fun, down-to-earth person to know.  This is a really good book, easy to read, chatty style.  Oh my goodness, the shocking scenarios they face.

This is the first part of a 3 part version of the book-these are usually released a few weeks earlier than the main book.  Brilliant choice of chapter divisions for the 3 parts-this part ends on a right cliffhanger, so you definitely can't wait to read part 2 to find out what happens next. So far, this is looking like one of Casey's best books for a while.

This review covers chapters 1-8 of the latest book from the brilliant foster carer and author Casey Watson, ‘Let Me Go’.
No sooner was Casey driving home from returning her last foster children, she received a call from her social worker asking if she would take another... Harley was an incredibly troubled 13 year old. She was currently at a hospital but they were ready to discharge her, even though it was clear Harley was still very mentally unwell.
Casey, her husband and 18 year old son know that Harley needs help but there is little they can initially do for her when she remains in her room and won’t speak to them.  Then the real problems begins...
Casey is a great foster carer; she is experienced, compassionate, professional and actually cares for the children who stay with her - it is more than just a job to her. She is also a great author and her books are a great read.
The format of downloading one third of a book is brilliant! If you don’t like it you don’t have to finish them and they will not sit on your to be finished pile... With this book the added benefit is that you can read it a couple of weeks before the whole book is published!
A brilliant read - can’t wait to read the next instalment and find out what happens with Casey and poor Harley.
Thanks to NetGalley, the publisher and the author for a Kindle copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
