Brilliantly written,this sad true story is about a foster carer's attempt to help an abused girl called JODIE to become somewhat normal,i wish there were more people like CATHY GLASS.
This book is very touching as tells us of Jodies problems such as learning difficulties,coping with sickening sexual abuse and a violent temper.
Jodie is overweight and oblivious to feelings,both her's and those of others,but she cleary is hiding a sweet girl in there somewhere.
This damaged girl comes out with things she doesn't even realize is wrong,demands things she can't understand that cannot be given and gets aggressive when questioned about her behaviour.
However,underneath the darkness there is this lovely girl that shows herself at times when all seems lost,but when other personalities come through her,it's clear her problems are a lot worse than first feared,leaving you wondering if there's any hope for her or if the sick perverts she used to live with have done too much damage.
I shall certainly look out for more titles from Carthy Glass after reading this brilliant but sad book. It will make you angry,but amusing moments will make you smile and the end just might make you cry,i'm not too proud to admit my eyes were tearing up near the end of this gripping true story about the lovely Jodie,a girl so very damaged.
