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.

This story is amazing! As soon as i started reading i just could not put the book down until i had finished it, and even once you have finished the book it stays with u but be warned it will bring tears to your eyes...Cathy Glass is an amazing foster carer and deserves an award for being such a kind & loving women. I have just had her 2nd book Hidden and once again it shows how amazing this lady is! If there was only so many women in the world like this lady then it would be a better place. You will not regret buying this book it is worth every penny. The story of these children she writes about is truly a journey & it makes you think alot. Will be buying her third book.

  i just couldn't put this book down

it was such a sad story of a foster child told by the foster mother. the poor little girl was entrusted into cathy glass' care and very slowly jodie started to trust cathy and told her heartbreaking and disgusting stories of how her mother and father had treated her. cathy also tells of how her own family were affected by this little girl. cathy glass is an amazing woman with the patience of a saint
