Cathy Glass excels in opening a viewing portal into the world of foster care. She has looked after more than 150 foster children, each new book, written under a pseudonym tugs at heart strings, and Cruel to be Kind is no exception. Six year old Max comes from a family full of troubles and woe, he fits in well with Cathy’s family, however a world of torment is bubbling under the surface. I found Max’s story to be compelling, my heart went out to this little boy and there are some vital lessons to be learned. Cathy writes simply, yet with such passion, and while she never judges, her views and thoughts are plain to see. Cruel to be Kind exposes a problem faced by many children today, and in Max’s case looks beyond the obvious, beneath the surface, to find a heart-breaking, yet ultimately uplifting story. ~ Liz Robinson
Cruel to be Kind is the true story of Max, aged 6. He is fostered by Cathy while his mother is in hospital with complications from type 2 diabetes. Fostering Max gets off to a bad start when his mother, Caz, complains and threatens Cathy even before Max has moved in. Cathy and her family are shocked when they first meet Max. But his social worker isn't the only one in denial; his whole family are too.
