Aged nine Joss came home from school to discover her father’s suicide. She’s never gotten over it.
This is the true story of Joss, 13 who is angry and out of control. At the age of nine, Joss finds her father’s dead body. He has committed suicide. Then her mother remarries and Joss bitterly resents her step-father who abuses her mentally and physically.
Cathy takes Joss under her wing but will she ever be able to get through to the warm-hearted girl she sees glimpses of underneath the vehement outbreaks of anger that dominate the house, and will Cathy be able to build up Joss’s trust so she can learn the full truth of the terrible situation?
I was lucky enough to get an advanced copy of this book and I would like to say thank you to lovereading for sending it to me. This is the second book I have read of Cathy Glass’s and I can’t believe some of the stories I have read so far. The poor children that have to go through these awful things at such a young age. It makes me feel sick. These books are so heart touching that I really do admire Cathy and the work that she does, She makes the child feel safe, and that they have a sense of belonging. These books also give you a good insight about what it is like to be a foster carer. Another fantastic read.
