Who can resist Billy's plea to 'Choose Me'?

Billy is only nine years old, but he's already learned that when your mum dies, you get your own social worker. He's also learned that once you are ten, the odds of finding a family to adopt you don't look so good. That's the part he wasn't supposed to overhear.

Miriam Riley is up against a deadline to give Billy the 'forever family' that every child deserves. Determined to cut through red tape, she finds three very different couples who might fit the bill, though prospective parents come with issues of their own.

Through Billy's watchful eyes, the summer unfolds. What does he really need? Will anyone choose him?
