Little Boy Lost
  • Little Boy Lost

  • Courage is sometimes found in the unlikeliest places ...

    Dominic is a sixteen year-old man-child: while he has the body of a prize-fighter, as a result of a terrible seizure when he was a small child he has been left with the mind of a child. In the centre where he spends his days, Dominic is a challenge and an inspiration: someone who struggles against the odds and whose every victory over his limitations is a cause for celebration. But when a new member of staff at the centre breaks a sacred trust, the fall-out is horrific and Dominic becomes a pawn in a dangerous game. Little Boy Lost is the story of Dominic's brave battle to face up to betrayal and show - one more time - that he is a survivor.

In fifteen years as a child-protection worker, Shane Dunphy saw children growing up in horrific situations. He also witnessed their amazing ability to survive those unpromising beginnings. Shane is now a tutor on childcare courses, a broadcaster and a respected commentator on child-protection issues.
