Although Jodie is only eight years old, she is violent, aggressive, and has already been through numerous foster families. Her last hope is Cathy Glass. At the Social Services office, Cathy (an experienced foster carer) is pressured into taking Jodie as a new placement. Jodie's challenging behaviour has seen off five carers in four months. Despite her reservations, Cathy decides to take on Jodie to protect her from being placed in an institution.

Brilliant, this book takes you through a whole range of emotions, ultimately though it is a sad reflection of so many children in today's society. Cathy Glass is clearly a wonderful foster parent and a voice for all the children she has helped a truly inspirational lady.
