As an experienced foster carer, Cathy has taken on many challenges. Never before has she been faced with a 17 year old schoolgirl who is seven months pregnant and has been thrown out of her home by her mother. Never one to shirk a new challenge, either, the always positive and compassionate Cathy accepts Jade into her home on a short term basis until a mother-and-baby foster place can be found. Of course, this does not happen. Jade's behavioural problems drop Cathy at the bottom of a steep learning curve which she climbs treading on eggshells, especially after Jade's baby arrives on the scene.

The unreliable and deceitful Jade confuses Cathy's feelings. She questions herself over mistakes and wrong decisions she may have made concerning Jade to the point of being a failure. This self-doubting runs alongside her strengths and abilities to continue to do what she considers in Jade's best interests. She never gives up.

This book is another fascinating insight into the trials and tribulations of foster-caring and the intimate relationship with the social worker and benefits systems. The emotional struggles and feelings of both hope and hopelessness run hand in hand throughout the story. The outcome of affairs hangs in the balance on a thread in the hands of Jade's commitment and the response of the authorities. Many heart-rending episodes keep the reader on tenterhooks awaiting the next move. Another wonderful journey through an episode affecting several lives by the mastery of Cathy Glass's authorship. Highly recommended.

I wasn't quite so sure about this book at first given that the situation was slightly different to many of the others in Cathy's books but I guess it's hardly surprising that I cried, enjoyed the book thoroughly and once again felt a wave of inspiration and hope as I finished the last page.

This book was a little uncomfortable read for me. On the one hand I liked the story from the foster carer's point of view, however on the other hand, I was left wondering how the subjects of her books felt being written about.

I think theres only been one book by Cathy Glass that I did not enjoy.. This one was a tale of a young girl who found herself pregnant and homeless. Cathy took her in and her baby which she gave birth to .The mother was very immature for her age and very nearly had her baby taken off her and placed into care. Cathy helped along the way and although the young mum was given plenty of chances it did look like the baby was going to be taken away. I wont spoil the end...

I can honestly say whenever I read cathy glass books I can picture it all. The books are writtrn with such emotion and are truly hard to put down. This book gives a true insight on teenage pregnancy and shows you a rue insight on teenages mothers and fathers, the social services and everyonr involved. It really taught me not to judge those who get pregant so young, it definatly pulls on your heart strings and you feel you actually truly care for the individuals involved. I have and would always reccomend these books to everyone.
