Cathy and Jill, often commented deeply frustrated, that they wondered whether she had any realistic perspective on working cathy glass girl alone childreen or teenagers. She seemed of the oppinion that Joss should agree to everything before it happens.

And basically not to be too firm with her, read not rock the boat, or things will get worse.


Basically her advice was tiptoe around Joss and beok with whatever she does. Then everyone is on the same page. Unfortunately they spent a frustrating meeting with Amelia doing the above.


So that the contract became almost laughable. Saying that Joss could be out til ten thirty all week except two random days.

So that did nothing. Then Cathy found out Joss was lying about where she was going and who with. That she was late for school almost every day.

Eventually Cathy tracked Joss down to a very ghetto apartment which was like drinking and drug city. cathy glass girl alone

The little communication she and Joss have when she sees her little brother Keven is hostile and Linda is drained by it. Ian, Goodreads review I loved this book. I have every book that Cathy Glass has written.

I would highly recommend.

Girl Alone

Your book inspired me to further my education so that I can work with children. The tragedy is no fiction, but a true story.

A life-affirming read…that proves sometimes a little hope is all you need. Sadly, I see this happening so often where a woman would rather side cathy glass girl alone her new husband than with her child ren.

Not once did I blame Cathy for not realizing why Joss was really acting out.
