Overview

Cathy Glass, the no.1 bestselling author of Damaged, tells the story of the Alice, a young and vulnerable girl who is desperate to return home to her mother.Alice, aged four, is snatched by her mother the day she is due to arrive at Cathy's house. Drug-dependent and mentally ill, but desperate to keep hold of her daughter, Alice's mother snatches her from her parents' house and disappears.Cathy spends three anxious days worrying about her whereabouts before Alice is found safe, but traumatised. Alice is like a little doll, so young and vulnerable, and she immediately finds her place in the heart of Cathy's family. She talks openly about her mummy, who she dearly loves, and how happy she was living with her maternal grandparents before she was put into care. Alice has clearly been very well looked after and Cathy can't understand why she couldn't stay with her grandparents.It emerges that Alice's grandparents are considered too old (they are in their early sixties) and that the plan is that Alice will stay with Cathy for a month before moving to live with her father and his new wife. The grandparents are distraught – Alice has never known her father, and her grandparents claim he is a violent drug dealer.Desperate to help Alice find the happy home she deserves, Cathy's parenting skills are tested in many new ways. Finally questions are asked about Alice's father suitability, and his true colours begin to emerge.

I can not say enough about her books, only that I wish she would write more and share more of her experiences with us all. I have read all her book that she has wrote and they are wonderful. I know not everyone is into these kind of books, but I really enjoyed them. I even found myself shedding a few tears in a couple of her books..Just want to say thanks the her for sharing her books..

Not as good as some of her other books (Broken) but still a touching story of the things that really do happen. I feel for the little girl and her family.

Cathy glass is a caring and wonderful person. She keeps it real and opens our eyes to things we try not to think about. So if its not your kind of book go back to fiction. Idiot

How many times is this writer going to use the children she is supposed to protect for profit?
