Author: Cathy Glass Format: Paperback Release Date: 10/09/2015

This is an achingly sad yet compelling tale, Cathy Glass, foster mother to over 150 children over 25 years, has written a number of books under a pseudonym. Not only does she reveal a heartbreaking story in ‘Girl Alone’, she also gives an insight into the thoughts and feelings of everyone involved in the fostering process. The clear, simple style, highlights the agony and devastating consequences of a child spiralling out of control. Joss is one one of the author’s most challenging foster children, 13 years old, drinking, taking drugs, associating with adult men and determined to have her own way. It is fascinating to see the affect Joss has, not only on the author, but also the other children in the household and how Cathy Glass, the police and social services manage this troubled young girl. As I read and after I had finished this heart-rending true account, I found myself hurting for Joss, questioning the system and full of admiration for the author. ~ Liz Robinson
