I have just submitted Refuge by Gillian White for your validating pleasure. 
It's Kes rating was 99.65. There are a lot of British terms and slang that 
might cause the tools a bit of trouble. Find the synopsis below.

Shelley Tremayne, mother of various children by different fathers,

 loves all her kids with a fierce passion. But Joey, her eldest,

 has always been a bit of a problem. She has defended him when

the school has complained about his behaviour; made excuses for

 him when he has been rude or bullying or seemingly out of control.

But an eight-week-old baby in a pram, set alight by some rowdy youths - 
surely her Joey couldn't be involved in that? When the police arrive and 
take him away to be questioned, she has to endure the primitive hostility of 
a neighbourhood outraged by the death of an innocent little child.

The Tremayne family must leave home for a place of safety, and the 
authorities put Shelley in touch with the Boltons, a kindly farming couple 
who take in problem families and work miracles on them. On their remote 
Dartmoor farm Shelley and her kids find a refuge - fresh air, wholesome 
food, and a discipline which they have never known before. The children seem 
calmer, happier.

But many families have come to the Boltons' farm,

and not all of them have left it...
