    1. Heidi on said:

      I like books about people who overcome terrible childhood experiences and turn their lives around And I like books about children in foster care who find love and acceptance, or books about teachers who manage to break through to a special needs child, or books about an adult whose life was enriched, not destroyed, by unusual experiences in childhood I find these books inspiring.But I don t like the books that give gory details about abuse I understand that it happens, but I prefer the books tha [...]

      Although the subject matter of this story is quite sad it s about a child that harms herself and has dealt with emotional and physical abuse , Cathy Glass did a phenomenal job in writing the story Even though Glass was one of the main characters in the story she did not take away the true main character of the story, which was the child she was a foster carer to, named Dawn Glass was able to project her wonder as to how this polite girl got to be so stressed and anxious that she was walking in h [...]

      A novel that would have made a better short story, in my humble opinion The secret that was teased was teased for far too long, and the Foster Mom Main Character fluctuates between being a saint like, heroic, selfless, most perfect mom ever character OR a complete dolt, naive to the ways of the entire world, blind and ignorant to the point of feeling like a lazy writing device rather than realistic character trait especially for a TRUE story person shakes head I am giving it 2 stars because it S [...]

      I was in a place where i had no computer and absolutely nothing to do, while i was searching for something interesting to past time i came across a pile of old books, among them the book that stood out was the Cut so i decided to read it just to keep myself busy with something I didn t know what kind of book it was at the time because i didn t bother to read the description i only looked at the cover so i thought i would have some fun while reading it Of course i didn t get what i was expecting [...]

    6. Den on said:

      This book is about when she first started fostering I can t believe how little the foster careers were told in those days They should never have been put in a situation where the child was a danger to the family This is the story of Dawn, a tearaway 13 year old, though most of the time she just craved family life She liked to push boundaries, as do most teenagers, but when she did push them they were pushed further than others Her behaviour all was a cry for help When she was five her parents sp [...]

    7. Love on said:

      As with her other book I read Damaged I could not seem to stop when I wanted How horrible these childrens lives are and we take them in with such mysteries, we never know until it starts to show on the outside I have only opened my home to two children other than my own Both arrived holding big secrets that formed into agression The tiring hours it takes n your mind and body Cathy Glass chose to do this for so many yeras almost knowing she would get one that would try her heart and mind What a g [...]

    8. Caroline on said:

      Didn t like this book Is it even legal for this women to foster kids then tell their personal stories to the world and make money from it The fact she changes name it s bullshit, because the parties involved know who she is referring to.I hope the social services department in England or where the hell she lives still isn t as effed up as she made it seem Though I m sure it s effed up all over the world and kids fall thru the cracks all the time Got a kid who runs away, drinks, cuts herself and [...]

    9. Gillian Taylor on said:

      A well written account of a young girl who is placed in foster care with Cathy her husband when social services employed a dump run policy.Dawn s problems soon become evident in a series of events which are unexplained by her social worker mother leaving little help for the family.Eventually the truth of Dawn s emotional problems comes to light help is finally given when she is moved back in with her mother.This is a very harrowing book to read yet I felt compelled to finish it so I could unders [...]

    10. Syura on said:

      This is my first of Cathy Glass s It took me less than 12 hours to finish reading this book, I was so hooked up to it but unfortunately not for long Gradually the story got so flat and the ending was predictable I got bored with Glass s leniency towards Dawn whenever she played truant, or went back home late on nights she was allowed out Basically, it was boring I just want to finish for the sake of knowing what really happened to Dawn in her childhood Period As I am not good with synopsis, just [...]

    11. Shilpi Jain on said:

      One of those books that you can t wait to finish in a good way, of course This is a first person account of the foster carer of a disturbed little girl with a history of truanting, alcoholism, sleepwalking and arson I won t give the ending away but brownie points for Cathy Glass for penning a gripping story, the only funny part was that Cathy constantly tries to justify her husband s annoyance at Dawn s behavior to the reader which made me think if she has presented the facts as dispassionately [...]

    12. Amber Hatfield on said:

      3.5 stars for this book Only because it would be morbid of me to like this book any than that This was an excellent account of the life of a foster parent and the horrible abuses these innocent kids face everyday The foster care system leaves lot to be desired Breaks my heart knowing there are precious kids out there needing our help, but dont receive it Sad world this is and Cathy Glass has done an excellent job sharing her experiences with us.

    13. Six-Fingered Nigel on said:

      Again, a brilliant read Heart wrenching as it uncovers the stark truths of what unexplained behaviour can hide about someone s past And the the extreme courage and patience to find the ability to try and help.

    14. Stephanie (Stepping out of the Page) on said:

      This was a great read Although it tackled some very tough issues, it wasn t a testing read and simply left me wanting to read It kept a good pace and was well written in terms of being able to sense what the characters were going through It was difficult to put this book down

    15. Hiruni Asalage on said:

      I decided to read this book as the blurb made me curious to know about the little girl who was said to have been abandoned and abused The book is about a lady called Cathy with the help of her husband John, that foster a girl known as Dawn, who hides her feelings and emotions.A character I found interesting is Dawn Jennings A few words I could describe Dawn to be are unpredictable, rebellious and loving, however some of these characteristics are changed at the end of this novel This quote descri [...]

    16. Ashley Jacobson on said:

      Man This was a good story, but a hard read It reminded me of my days working at a girls home and I was scared for Cathy and her family I know what it feels like to love someone, but be worried about protecting yourself from them It is hard to be on guard to protect yourself and keep them safe, while at the same time trying to let down your guard and really connect with and help them I cannot imagine what Cathy and Jon went through No support from social services No idea what they were doing A ne [...]

    17. Donna on said:

      Wonderful StoryThe book is a very powerful one and should be read by teachers, foster parents and those dealing with abused children This is the story of a young girl named Dawn, who, through no fault of her own, is sent to foster care because she is out of control and her mother feels helpless to deal with her.Cathy and John, her foster parents, have such patience and kindness towards Dawn in spite of the pain and problems she causes them But, ultimately, Dawn s cries for help are answered prop [...]

    18. Trish on said:

      Dull Sad that this story depicts someone s life but it was too much like a bad Lifetime movie There was plenty of drama but only if you like mindless entertainment I seriously cannot imagine dealing with a system and foster child that were so ungrateful and unconcerned for the Glass family The confidentiality rules, give her pocket money, and the forced unaccountability for her whereabouts was completely unacceptable They should have told Ruth to go pound sand.I wanted to like this book since I [...]

    19. Tammie Browning on said:

      A great foster mom with a troubled young girl.This is a book you have to be ready to feel every emotion We all hear stories about children in the system but this is the true story about two families and especially about a young girl who deserved than she received for too many years and this is the true account by the special lady who was the foster mom I wish all foster parents would be like Cathy I will read all her books.

    20. Charissa Ty on said:

      I don t know why but I m just slightly annoyed at how nice Cathy Glass was to Dawn I would definitely be strict and actually run a background check, checked her room, and forcefully sent her to school everyday I will never give a rebellious child so much freedom like that It s like she never learned her lesson from the first time Dawn goes missing Just kept letting her do it She needs an ASIAN MOM frustration

    21. Catherine on said:

      This was a heart breaking book, but I still enjoyed it.The bestselling author of Damaged tells the story of Dawn, a sweet and seemingly well balanced girl whose outward appearance masks a traumatic childhood of suffering at the hands of the very people who should have cared for her.

    22. Krisi Kranz on said:

      Good book Any one that does foster care with good intentions is a very special person So many children need help and a positive adult in there life We have no idea what some of these children go through in life Horrifying

    23. Katie Rowe on said:

      Cathy Glass has a way of writing that draws you in wanting I have read quite a few of her books but this was the first book I read of hers, it is close to my heart as I know some friends of mine who have self harmed and it was sad to read about a girl of such a young age but she had reasons.

    24. Irene Moyer on said:

      Touching, ultimately upliftingI was a foster parent But in the U.S we got good training and help than the Glass family Still, it could be very tough Some stories ended well, others not A good account.

    25. Sally Gooding on said:

      Cathy has done another great read Such love kindness shown to a troubled child who felt she didn t belong, with time and patience from Cathy she found what she was looking for

    26. Mary-jane Farrer on said:

      A fantastic true story of a teenager who has experienced trauma and how a positive experience in a loving foster family sets her on the road to healing

    27. CarolWilkowitz on said:

      My ReviewI chose this rating because I feel that it deserved it It brought a lot of painful memories that I have yet to deal with myself.

    28. Linda Phillips on said:

      Cathy Glass has written this and numerous other books about her journey as a foster mother It is an honest and well written account of her experience with one badly abused young girl whose life was positively affected by Glass s care.
