Publisher's Summary

The true story of a six-year-old boy with a dreadful secret.

Oskar's school teacher raises the alarm. Oskar's mother is abroad, and he has been left in the care of friends, but has been arriving in school hungry, unkempt and with bruises on his arms, legs and body. Experienced foster carer Cathy Glass is asked to look after him, but as the weeks pass, her concerns deepen. Oskar is far too quiet for a child of six and is clearly scared of something or someone.

And who are those men parked outside his school watching him?

Not my favorite but still good

I’m a huge fan of Glass books, but this one wasn’t at the top of my list. Still a good one, just not as captivating as her other books.

Full of compassion and impossible to put down!

This book is another well written, exciting, thought provoking, and heart wrenching book. Ms Glass has outdone herself. I wait on tenterhooks for the next book.

I loved it, although extremely sad in the beginning, it brings better feelings in the end.

Her memoirs get better and better with each book

Being a huge Cathy Glass fan, I have listened to all of her books, so when this one was released for preorder I bought it immediately. It did not disappoint. My heart broke along with Cathy’s when she told Oskar’s story. She is an amazing human being in the way she deals with these kids and their tragic stories. Danica Fairman is a great narrator, and give life the stories. I can’t wait for the next book!!!

not what I expected

I bought this book thinking it was going to be a thriller but instead it was an account of foster care and a heartbreaking story I've been abused little boy it wasn't a bad book but it was definitely not what I wanted
