This book is definitely among some of the favorite books I've read in a very long time. Cathy Glass details treatment of children that is shocking yet something the world needs to be aware of so that more people can prevent or stop the abuse that occurs to children more affectively, efficiently and quickly. This story was very captivating and I found it hard to walk away because I felt I had to see how it ended. I would recommend this book and all by Cathy Glass (she has quite a few more that are not yet on here) to any student in social work, professionals that work with children, survivors of abuse (though some areas may bring back memories), children that live in a home that does fostering but are not foster children (her books are helpful on how people can live as being the child that is not in care) and anyone else that is interested in seeing what life is like when a foster carer does their job properly and these books also show the downfalls of the social services as well; allowing readers to see that the system is not perfect but there are great people in it. Her writing style is very beautiful. She incorporates many things into her books: suspense, honesty, emotional fluctuations (some parts of the story are really sad while others are very joyous and reasons for the reader to be very excited) and she writes with an honesty and style that can only come from truly having experienced these sort of situations.
