    I have read Cathy Glass books since, well, it seems, forever And each time she writes a heart touching story you get an insight to not only the little person she is talking about but she reveals about herself Cathy is known by Social Services as an Experienced foster carer You can see why in each book, but with each book she writes and I take away with my about the person behind these successful stories.Patience.Tenderness.Frustration.Yes I feel the frustration that Cathy must feel sometimes [...]

    I m pretty much going to say about this book what I say about every Cathy Glass book I ve read this far I m so glad I discovered Cathy s books Honestly, not only do her books take me on a rollercoaster ride of emotions, it also makes me grateful that I am the type of parent who is the opposite of most of the parents of the children Cathy fosters Reading these stories of abused children or children who have suffered trauma at the hands of their parents or others they trusted, gives me chills I wo [...]

    Another tragic yet great book from Cathy Glass I had an inkling halfway through that there had to be to the story for a thirteen year old to be acting out that bad Parts of this book brought me to tears.

    Jo
    Quite simply I could not put this book down It held me in its grasp until I turned the very last page resulting in a very late bedtime for me I must confess I have always felt uncomfortable reading published true life stories of first person trauma, feeling somehow voyeuristic about reading them for my so called entertainment I was however much comfortable with this, told not by the victim Joss, but from the point of view of her very caring foster mum, Cathy Troubled teen Joss, has chosen to le [...]

    I really enjoyed this book and although I had read some Cathy Glass books it was a long time ago I had forgotten what an extraordinary woman she is and the calmness that seems to prevail in her household.Joss came to stay with Cathy as a last resort after she had been the one to find her dad when he had comitted suicide and her mother had remarried She had been to several foster homes but there was talk of a secure unit and Cathy just didn t think that would help Joss The problem was that Joss w [...]

    I await each new Cathy Glass book eagerly, and she never disappoints.I enjoyed Joss s story as I have enjoyed all the others.There is something about the way Cathy writes, that has me up late at night, totally powerless to put the book down.I also enjoy checking Cathy s website for updates on the children I have read about.This is a really nice touch, as I feel I get to know these children through Cathy s books and it is good to get regular updates on their lives.So, when is the next book due ou [...]

    I was engrossed in this book Could not put it down Feel Cathy is a fabulous writer and keeps you in suspense of what happens next I enjoy these realistic books I felt towards the end the way it was written that Cathy still doubted Joss was telling the truth about her step father, it made me feel it had another twist coming and that maybe Joss had indeed made it up The ending was nice and glad Joss remained in contact.

    Another inspiring story by caregiver Cathy Glass She has an amazing way of making a difference in children that have been through so much abuse it makes me cringe Cathy opens up her heart her home , she is very patient , kind helping the children be at ease and opening up to talk about it all Thanks Cathy for all you do to help these kids have a bright future.

    Vicky Herbert
    I ve been an avid fan of Cathy Glass and her books for a very long time and am happy to say this is yet another sad but awe inspiring story Cathy deserves a knighthood for her fostering and ability to get through to even the most damaged kids 5 stars without a doubt thank you to netgalley and the publisher for the review copy in return of an honest review.

    Carolyn Nevitt
    No one really knows why a child acts the way they do.I This was one of the most heart wrenching books I have read It shows how abuse is hidden and how the abused child reacts I believe anyone thinking of entering the fostering field should read this and keep notes.

    Delia Sandford
    Another great book as always Cathy x
