Thursday's children commenced with an unexpected meeting from a school acquaintance whose problematic adolescent revived memories of Frieda’s disillusioning past. Although it started gradually, the authors made it interesting by encompassing counselling insights demonstrating Dr. Frieda Klein’s psychotherapeutic attributes. By involving many characters (teenage classmates, their mothers, a tutor and a police officer), the narrative concocted complexity, but Frieda’s guts in confronting them, a mother who loathed her and friends who loved her for what she was is remarkable. Her wit, resilience and determination can be rekindling for individuals with a low self-esteem.
