Girl Alone By Cathy Glass.


"Aged nine Joss came home from school to discover her father's suicide. She's never got 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 more recently 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 off 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.

Cathy glass has wrote many books, she has been a foster carer to many, many years and fostered over 150 children. She is an amazing woman and I wish there was more people in the world like her! Anyway, this is the story of a young girl called Joss. She has been through so very much in her life already. She finds her father dead, he comitted suicide when she was nine years old and Joss and her mother discover him. Which I can't even imagine what that must have been like, especially for a nine year old child. Joss' mum remarries, Joss doesn't like her new step dad and ends up in Cathy's care. There's a twist to this story that I didn't see coming and was shocked! I may have had a bit of a lump in my throat and tear in my eye if I'm honest. It is a very sad story but it has a much happier ending.
Another brilliantly written book from Cathy and my heart goes out to Joss and her family.
Five stars from me.
