CoramBAAF currently has a special offer on The Control Freak trilogy of books (Control Freak, Losing Control, and Remote Control).

This series of young adult novels follows Holly Richards, a teenage care leaver who is tough, practical, determined, and has her whole future carefully mapped out. But how will she manage independent living, work and education, relationships, prejudice and the dangers of social networking? Will she be able to cope and stay in control when her perfectly laid plans go pear-shaped and everyday life descends into chaos?

These fast-paced, entertaining and moving books are ideal reading for young people aged 13 and over, with a care background or not. You can buy all three books in the series for just £15, saving 40%.

Visit the CoramBAAF bookshop to find out more.

Coram Voice helps real-life care leavers on issues like those being faced by Holly. Leaving care can be challenging which is why it is so important that Coram Voice advocates are there to provide independent advice and help. Our advocates support young people to speak out and realise their potential.

Coram Voice provides Always Heard which helps looked after children and care leavers to access advocacy services in their area and provides an advocacy ‘safety net’ when local support is unavailable.

Our Always Heard advocates are on hand to help care leavers to understand their rights and get their voices heard. Contact Always Heard free on 0808 800 5792 or online here.
