The Kids of Welles Bend

Five kids. Five different disabilities. Five lives about to be changed.

Tamsin has been bounced from foster home to foster home. Now she’s living on the remote coast of Tasmania, wondering if she’s ever going to fit in anywhere.

Lara has cerebral palsy. The doctors said she’d never walk. She proved them wrong. Now Lara’s got another goal, but can she and Tamsin pull off their daring plan?

Dean’s father works at the wildlife park, and Dean, who is deaf, is allowed to help with the squirrel monkeys. But he is keeping an incredible secret, a secret that happened by accident…

Brad’s life is far from great, but his secret visits each day to see Beauty, the white pony he’s befriended, make life bearable. But when Beauty goes missing after a storm, will his past behaviour put the pony’s safety – and her life – in danger?

Damien might be almost blind, but he’s got a dream he’s kept to himself for years. And the only one who can help him is Brad. But does he trust Brad enough to put his safety in the former bully’s hands?
