I haven't read this book or any other of Cathy Glass's books. I don't know how she gets away with calling them non fiction, because I don't believe that they are. I was a social worker and team manager of a Fostering & Adoption Team (retired now but 30 years service for a LA) and foster carers would NOT be allowed to write about foster children, or those who "ask" to be adopted etc etc etc because of the issue of confidentiality. Even if it was allowed, they would not have the time!
I know people like these books but I think CG and others like her who churn out these books just do research into neglected abused children and call in a biography.Read moreLess

"Cathy Glass at her best…"
I was sent this book through Mumsnet in their competition to review, and was so pleased to receive it, being a fan of Cathy Glass's books for many years, and having already eyed up the book in my local supermarket. Lucy, her adopted daughter has always been mentioned in her previous books, and all we were told was that she came to her as a foster child, and asked to be adopted by Cathy. It was heartbreaking to read, as are all of her books, and I won't give Lucy's story away, but at least with this book, I knew it would be a happy ending, already knowing that she became a permanent part of Cathy's family.
If you enjoy reading real-life stories of unfortunate children who have been able to rebuild their lives, this book is for you.Read moreLess
