  • Story Description Seven year old Reece was the last of six siblings to be taken into foster care By the time he arrived at Cathy s his disruptive behaviour had seen him go through four carers in little over a month But as an experienced foster carer, with a reputation for handling difficult children, Cathy welcomed Reece into her home despite knowing virtually nothing about his family history Little by little Reece began to warm to Cathy and her family, and learned to trust those around him But [...]


  • I struggled to stay interested with this one I found that the way the book was written, not the story itself, was flat and lacking in emotion.I also didn t particularly like Reese and I m not sure why Usually, no matter if the child is likable or not, I feel a certain sympathy and compassion But not this time.Not one of her better books.


  • Existem segredos que nos ultrapassam Que moem c dentro, que corrompem o que de mais belo temos, que nos fazem agir erradamente e que nos quebram os ossos, colam os l bios e atam as m os Existem segredos capazes de destruir vidas, vidas pequenas e inocentes que deveriam ser por n s preservadas e amadas, cuidadas Existem segredos que A m e n o me deixa contar Este um romance que nos emociona e toca, que nos permite verter uma l grima mas tamb m esbo ar um sorriso, mas que, acima de tudo, comove pe [...]


  • I normally really enjoy books by Cathy Glass but this one I couldn t really get into, hence it took me a month to read There was something that I didn t like about the child that was the main character Not sure whether it was his behaviour or whether I just didn t like the way Glass portrayed his character Towards the end you find out very sad news which explains partially why he has such problems and then I felt really bad for him But the news is also quite disturbing and horrifying so I had my [...]


  • Heartbreaking and touching, Cathy Glass tells the story of Reece, a troubled 7 year old, broght into her care after going through 4 carers in 6 weeks The things Reece has been subjected to at home are heartbreaking, and no child should have to deal with the things Reece has had to deal with With a firm and loving hand, Cathy does her best to get Reece on the right path I have to admit, with the discription of Reece at the beginning of the book, I realize that I would in no way ever be able to do [...]


  • I had previously read Cut and Damaged by Cathy Glass, and this was by far the best out of all of them The biggest thing I have to complain about is the covers of the books they re very deceiving because the children on the covers tend to be many years younger than the children the book is actually about.


  • Cathy Glass constant stream of shock value child abuse stories get old really fast Child abuse and neglect is wrong no doubt, but these books are full of filler and aren t very original at all.


  • Another book which you wish wasn t based on real life How can anyone treat a child that way I am so impressed at how the carer managed to bring the best out of the child


  • This book was incredible, even though finding out what the truth behind Reece s story was quite painful I enjoyed every single word of this book It gives you than the story of a battered little boy It gives you all the details of his stay at Cathy s place, and loads of information for anybody who is interested in being a foster parent one day This book is a must read for all people interested in foster care and all kids who think they have terrible parents.One thing I do hope dearly is that Cat [...]


  • Can t wait to open the pages of this one tonight Finished it on two days, absolutely riveting read Had trouble putting it down Made me realize that there are some very disturbed people in this world and it is definatley the children who suffer Can t wait to get my hands on of her work.


  • This book was AMAZING I just couldnt put it down I loved that it felt as though you knew Cathy and Reece, it was nice to know that good things came to him at the end Really sad in parts but thats what drew you in, really felt as though you was part of the story.


  • Ksi ki Cathy Glass zawsze czyta si ze ci ni tym sercem i zami w oczach Historie, kt re opisuje s tak przejmuj ce, a co gorsza prawdziwe, e nawet najtwardsi si wzrusz Nie inaczej jest w przypadku Nikomu nie powiem , ksi ki, w kt rej g wny bohater Reece trafia do opieki spo ecznej razem z ca ym swoim rodze stwem.Siedmiolatek zdecydowanie nie nale a do spokojnych dzieci W ci gu zaledwie kilku tygodni a cztery razy zmienia rodziny zast pcze, bo nikt nie potrafi sprosta jego wymaganiom Wyj tkowo trud [...]


  • Cathy takes us on a gripping and traumatised journey once again She welcomes the reader into her home as openly as she does her foster children and so mid way through the book you genuinely have a sense that you are an additional family member sharing the ups and downs with Cathy and her family.This time, Cathy fosters Reece who has recently come into foster care As a character I did not feel very attached to Reece and actually he rather irritated me until I had passed the half way mark of the b [...]


  • A m e n o me deixa contar um livro carregado de emo es N o me lembro do ltimo livro que li e que me fez chorar, como aconteceu com este Cathy Glass traz nos com esse livro, uma nova concep o da maldade humana e de como por vezes, um pouco de amor, ainda que de estranhos, conseguem mudar uma vida Sendo m e de uma crian a, quase hiperactiva, como eu sou, consigo colocar me na posi o dessa m e de acolhimento Foram muitas as crian as que lhe passaram pelas m os e todas elas com problemas graves de i [...]


  • The ending of this story left me elated and satisfied, but the journey I had to undergo with Reece, Cathy, her family, and other key role players to get to this wonderful finale was harrowing and painful I thought I had heard and read enough to understand the extent abusive parents will go to to damage their own flesh and blood, but this book made me realize that I had no clue I could almost not fathom a mother such as Tracey and for a while there thought the author was exaggerating about how te [...]


  • i usually read fiction this should be one of the few non fict that i have read as it was in a stash that my best friend handed over to me i selected it only because it was the smallest and most compact of the lote moment i started, i couldn t stop.i kept checking to remind myself that it isn t make believe but a real story spun into words the emotions were all too real that the world is really not so much of a black and white, eitheri did not like children much because i have always thought they [...]


  • First of all you will need a box of tissues when reading this book.This a story of a little boy called Reece who was taken into care along with his six sibling.when he came in to care his birth mum would call him Sharky and Reece loved to bite, all his toys had something to do with sharks,Reece had very bad learning difficulties and had been excluded for two schools plus there was sure he had been sexual abuse,His birth mother had told him not to tell like a lot of children when there come into [...]


  • This was an amazing story It showed how consistancy and boundaries help any child no matter how troubled they are I felt sorry for Reece and had a real hatred towards his mum reading this story Even when the truth came out I still didnt feel sorry for Tracey as she is an adult and should have known better but yet she continued to let bad things happen and I kept thinking that I would never want to come across her Also I think if her children are constantly being taken away she should have been f [...]


  • This amazing foster carers first book was a surprise success There are so many childhood memoirs out there, but few that document the journey of those that are there to pick up the pieces when all is said and done.Unlike her previous book, this release was a slight disappointment I cannot but marvel at Cathy s strength and determination to mentor fractured children and put them on the road to recovery, whatever their stories However the writing in this book appeared slapdash and hastily publishe [...]


  • Reading a Cathy Glass book reminds me a little of watching the Waltons on TV when I was a kid She never makes any mistakes, never seems to lose her temper or behave less than professionally even in her own home However, I love reading the stories of the children she perseveres with and the positive outcomes she is able to achieve for them As a school teacher of young children in deprived areas, I recognise the damaged children and know something of the families they come from It is enormously fr [...]


  • I ve never read this kind of book before and honestly, this is my first So the story is about a boy who has a disturbing behavior and a broken family So the writer became his foster parent with the help of her two kids At first I did not like the boy because of his behavior but in the end, he started to open up himself and proved to us all that even a troubled kid can actually be fixed The progress of him getting there was inspiring because of how the writer had helped him As you read through th [...]


  • Heartwarming and sad story about the cycle of abuse within families and what it does to innocent children Cathy, the foster Mum, has excellent strategies to help these children grow and learn to work through the challenges that they were dealt with Although the story is disturbing, you gain an understanding of the victims of abuse and how it perpetuates, the challenges with the foster care system and how a carer has to be a strong individual both mentally and physically to care for some of these [...]


  • Mesmo que n o tivesse gostado este livro seria especial pela menina que mo ofereceu, A minha querida Vera Neves do Sinfonias Apesar de n o conhecer bem esta autora fiquei rendida a este livro Temos um menino que sofreu horrores na m o da fam lia e que por isso se torna mais dif cil.Fiquei com uma d vida ser tico ela relatar os casos porque passa, mesmo alterando os nomes.Bem foi uma experiencia interessante Obrigada Verinha


  • I enjoy reading these books from the perspective of the foster carer, you not only get to read about these children s experiences, and hear about their courageous spirits, but the carer s side as well.I know very little about fostering and I feel that Cathy Glass brings me a wealth of knowledge into this subject.


  • Another really good book from Cathy I really couldn t say which one is my favourite During this book I smiled, laughed, cried, had shivers down my spine and said words out loud such as awwe I personally would ve called this book Sharky.


  • BrilliantI ve always wanted to be a foster carer and reading Cathy Glass books gives me the insight I need that you can only get by fostering yourself she is truly amazing what she does for these children when all else has failed recommended to all my friends and family


  • Incredible the way that society fails some and how others offer so much to help society A heart warming and heart breaking book Thanks are due to Cathy Glass for sharing her experiences, love and wisdom.


  • Seriously, love Cathy Glass s books I have read them all, seriously consider reading one of her books, i cannot chose a favourite they are all so good Enjoy x


  • It was so interesting to read this book Real story about little child who was child of incest His carer Cathy did a lot for him to have a chance for normal life.


  • I love that this book is from the viewpoint of a carer who shares her experiences It brings to light the problems Foster parents face and you can t help but admire her.
