Description of the book "Turning Stones: My Days And Nights With Children At Riska Caseworker's Story":
Why does an infant die of malnutrition? Why does an eight-year-old hold a knife to his brother's throat? Or a mother push her cherished daughter twenty-three floors to her death? Marc Parent, a city caseworker, searched the streets—and his heart—for the answers, and shares them in this powerful, vivid, beautifully written book.
WITH A NEW AFTERWORD BY THE AUTHOR
For four years, Mark Parent was a respected caseworker in New York City's Emergency Children's Services, a city agency created to cope with cases of suspected and actual abuse reported during the evening and nighttime PDF hours. In his young charges Parent saw day-to-day bravery as well as some of the strangest twists the human soul can take. Shocking, illuminating, funny, lyrical, and above all searchingly honest, this book takes readers into a world that many would rather not contemplate.
