A poignant and shocking memoir of foster carer Cathy Glass's relationship with Tayo, a young boy whose good behavior and polite manners hide a terrible past. Tayo arrives at Cathy's with only the clothes he stands up in. He has been brought to her by the police, but he is calm, polite, and very well spoken, and not at all like the children she normally fosters. Tayo has no past. Tayo is an "invisible" child, kidnapped from his loving father in Nigeria and brought illegally to the UK by his drink and drugs dependent prostitute mother, where he is put to work in a sweat shop in Central London. Tayo lies and manipulates situations to his own advantage, and Cathy has to be continually on guard. Tayo's social worker searches all computer databases but there is no record of Tayo—he has only attended school for 3 terms and has never seen a doctor. He and his mother have been evading the authorities by living "underground." With his mother recently released from prison, Tayo is desperate to live with his father in Nigeria, but no one can track him down or even prove that he exists.
