Charlie’s a Clepto by Clare Monnelly
Presented by Axis Ballymun
Charlie is a kleptomaniac - the doctor told her. Reckons it stems from childhood trauma. But she has the robbin’ completely under control these days. For real. She has a bit of a mouth on her, but she’s only trying to be funny, give everyone a laugh, not cause trouble, like. Not today, of all days. She loves that little boy more than she ever thought it was possible to love another human. There’s a lot riding on these 24 hours, and if she keeps her head down, she’ll get him back.
Charlie’s a Clepto is a story about motherhood, messing up and doing your best to make it up.
