Too Scared to Tell

Oskar’s school teacher raises the alarm. Oskar’s mother is abroad and he has been left in the care of ‘friends’, but has been arriving in school hungry, unkempt, and with bruises on his arms, legs and body. Experienced foster carer Cathy Glass is asked to look after him, but as the weeks pass her concerns deepen. Oskar is far too quiet for a child of six and is clearly scared of something or someone, but what?

 

Oskar says he likes school. He feels safe there. But when he sees two men he recognizes in a car parked outside his school he is petrified. Only then does he start to tell Cathy what really happened in the house he once called home.
