The Looked After Kid by Paolo Hewitt
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Paolo Hewitt is the celebrated biographer of amongst others, Oasis, Alan McGee and the mercurial footballer, Robin Friday. He is a successful journalist who has made numerous TV and radio appearances. Yet behind this veneer, lies a troubled past, which this moving autobiography seeks to come to terms with. Paolo Hewitt was put into care at a very early age following his mother's breakdown. He was placed with a foster family where he was regularly beaten and humiliated by the mother, after enduring years of her destructive anger and sbusive behaviour he rebelled and was sent to an orphanage. He was ten years old. This is a compelling story that vividly details what life was like for kids in a British orphanage in the '70s. It has been written for all those children who, in the author's own words, 'go to sleep at night believing the world to be a dark, terrible place'. this book addresses the emotional struggle which children who lived in the orphanage faced and seeks to address the feelings of fear and rejection which afflict so many children without a normal family life. The Looked-After Kids is a poignant, well-observed and riveting tale of love, luck, broken promises, compassion
