"Damaged" by Cathy Glass was one of those books that I absolutely could NOT put down. If you "enjoyed" the book "A Child Called It" by Dave Pelzer, then you will love this book as well. It takes a look at the work of Cathy, who has been a foster parent for many years. She is told of a disturbed little girl, Jodie, who has been with 5 different foster homes in the short period of 4 months. Cathy decides that her experience in caring and loving foster children is more than enough to take on this new challenge. Cathy later finds that she is in for more than she bargains for with this little girl. However, Cathy does not give up and earns the trust of Jodie, only to be told bits and pieces of her horrific childhood. I would recommend this book to anyone and everyone! It is an emotional true story that will leave you with a new respect for foster parents and the good people of the social service system.

"Damaged" is definitely a heartbreaking and disturbing book. You learn something on every page that this little girl has endured throughout her 8 years. Don't expect a happy ending with this book and as much as I find this book revolting, it is a page turner. The book was very well written for you to absolutely HATE this child's family. So terribly sad that so many children go through such horrible things and social services look the other way on so many of them...

    Good read

    I read this book in less than a week. Short book but really good. You here horror stories about children in foster care but this has to be the worse I have read or heard. A little disturbing but true.

    A truly sad story, but lacking in writing style.

    I just felt that you never really got to the heart of the story or the little girl's real story. I was not impressed with the writing skills either.

    Ehh

    I felt like it was a tad too long. But it had a good story line.
