Aged nine Joss came home from school to discover her father's suicide. She's never gotten over it.
This is the true story of Joss, 13 who is angry and out of control. At the age of nine, Joss finds her father’s dead body. He has committed suicide. Then her mother remarries and Joss bitterly resents her step-father who abuses her mentally and physically.
Cathy takes Joss under her wing but will she ever be able to get through to the warm-hearted girl she sees glimpses of underneath the vehement outbreaks of anger that dominate the house, and will Cathy be able to build up Joss’s trust so she can learn the full truth of the terrible situation?
It's a few years since I read a book by Cathy Glass, and when I saw this one, I really wanted to give it a read. I enjoy books like this occasionally in between all the crime books I read.
I was lucky enough to get a review copy of this book. And I couldn't wait to start it.
I enjoy the writing style of Cathy Glass, and the way the books are told. Honest and down to the point.
This is by no doubt another fantastic book. I think the blurb about the book gives enough of what it is about and I don't want to go into the story for fear of giving anything away about how it goes. But it is really interesting how a family copes with such big changes. It was good hearing some more on Cathy's other children. I felt like I was visiting a family I hadn't seen for a while.
It really is a good read, if you have read and enjoyed any of Cathy's previous books. Then you will really enjoy this one.
If you have read this book, there is now an update available on Cathy's web page.
but only check it out if you have read the book...
