Running Out of Tears by Esther Rantzen - signed

£9.99

Product description

The moving personal stories of Childline's children over twenty-five years.

Childline was launched in 1986, the first national helpline for children in the world. With it came a revolution in child protection. Here, founder Esther Rantzen tells the stories of some of those whose lives have been transformed by the charity, including that of Jo who was one of the 50,000 children who rang on the first night. She also details landmark events, cases and helpers, in a book that is inspiring and uplifting, although the individual stories are themselves disturbing. Illustrated with photographs on plates. Pagination: xvi + 252 pages.

Blue cloth binding with silver-coloured lettering to spine; colour illustrated dust-jacket.

Very good condition for a second-hand book: very light edge-wear to the dust-jacket top edge; slight discolouring to edges of some pages, occasional discolouring internally, otherwise internally fine.
