    FREE PDF × BOOK The Children Act ñ IAN MCEWAN The Children ActDo you like to people watch?You know what I mean just sit somewhere in a busy place and watch people bustle past in all their colourful weirdness It's a habit I've acuired with age Sometimes I think back to being a teenager and remember how I always wondered if I was strange in some way I guess a lot of teens wonder that same uestion am I normal?

Fiona Maye a High Court Judge in the Family Division of the Courts in England and this could be anywhere has had to make many decisions in the course of her career that impact the lives of children We learn of some of the thought provoking cases that she has ruled on – a custody battle over two Jewish sisters whose divorcing parents are at odds over whether or not their daughters should be brought up in the strict orthodox Jewish tradition; the case of conjoined twins and whether
