On 12th February 1993, Denise's life changed forever. As she was running errands at New Strand Shopping Centre, she let go of her 2-year-old son's hand to take out her purse. Denise never saw her son again. The murder of James Bulger shocked the world, as his killers became the youngest convicted murderers in the UK. Denise then took up a tortuous legal battle for James, and it was her astonishing strength and love for her son that ultimately helped to change the way the law treats victims of crime. This is a mother's tale, of finding a way through the despair to remember the happiness and wonderful memories that James brought his family. Above all, Denise doesn't want her son to be remembered as a murdered child, and with this beautifully written book she does just that.
