The Lovereading4Kids comment

When Phoebe and her brother Adam get left with a baby they are determined to keep her a secret. Although their parents have always fostered children they are currently living apart so it just doesn’t seem the right moment to introduce a new baby into the home. Instead, with little knowledge and no previous experience, Phoebe and Adam look after her in their shed. Can they keep Iris safe and can they keep her a secret? Phoebe tells their story vividly bringing to life the complication of their situation against a vibrant background of an unusual family life.
