These are the riveting and disturbing true stories of a child welfare caseworker's years on the job. For four years, Marc Parent was a respected case worker in New York City's Emergency Children's Services, a city agency created to investigate cases of abused children. Parent was devoted, and witnessed bravery as well as some of the worst tortures of the soul. But then one of his cases went horribly wrong. Faced with the tragedy of a child's death he ultimately, inspiringly, rediscovered the feeling of making a difference by turning one stone--saving one child--at a time.
With a new Afterword by the author.
"Turning Stones is by turns discomforting and painful, comic and hopeful. Marc Parent's unblinking honesty made me wince. His deft storytelling made me sit up and listen. And his love for the children--and yes, their parents--made me want to turn stones as well."
--Alex Kotlowitz, author of There Are No Children Here
