The fifteenth fostering memoir by Cathy Glass. Danny was petrified and clung to me in desperation as I carried him to my car. Trapped in his own dark world, he couldn't understand why his parents no longer loved or wanted him and were sending him away. While Danny's parents have everything they could wish for in material terms, they are unable to care for their only child. This is where Cathy comes in.

Our prisons and mental hospitals are filled with tragic stories like Tuesday Storm's. Her early childhood was riddled with torturous "games" and violent physical attacks. She was isolated from the rest of her family, locked in an attic with nothing but a bare bed and a bucket for a toilet, and fed just enough to be kept alive. The experts say it's next to impossible to find the soul's light in a dark past like Tuesday's.

I thought this book, the 2nd part of " Call me Tuesday" did a great job of taking you back into the past, just enough for you to understand what the reader was referring to, but not so much that you felt like it was just a remake of the Tuesday book. The reader was engaging and did the book justice. It was a difficult story and I found myself having to take breaks because of how real the reader made Tuesday become to me, and as she started to spin out of control.....well, I don't want to spoil the read for anyone. I definitely recommend this book as well as it's beginning "Call me Tuesday", which definitely should be listened to first. You will not regret it, but prepare yourself for hideous abuse.
