Mummy Told Me Not to Tell When Reece arrives at Cathy's door aged 7 years old, he has already passed through the hands of four different carers in four weeks. As the details of his short life emerge, it becomes clear that to help him, Cathy will face her biggest challenge yet.

The latest title from the author of Sunday Times and New York Times bestseller Damaged.

Reece is the last of six siblings to be fostered. Having been in care for four months his aggressive and disruptive behaviour has seen him passed from carer to carer. Although only 7, he has been excluded from school, and bites people so often that his mother calls him 'Sharky'.

Cathy wants to find the answers for Reece’s distressing behaviour, but he has been sworn to secrecy by his mother, and will not tell them anything. As the social worker prepares for the final hearing, he finds five different files on Reece’s family, and is incredulous that he had not been removed from them as a baby. When the darkest of family secrets is revealed to Cathy, Reece’s behaviour suddenly starts to make sense, and together they can begin to rebuild his life.

Cathy runs training courses on fostering for her local Social Services, and helps draft new fostering procedures and guidelines.

    As with all Cathy Glass books, couldn't put it down. So well written & heartwarming. Hard to believe children have to go through such terrible things, but thank goodness there are wonderful people like Cathy to show them normality.

    Excellent. Brought tears to my eyes. Tears of happiness and tears of foreboding. Cathy's writing is clear, easily understood and without unnecessary frills. It was beautiful to hear how Reece's English had improved when Cathy and the girls visited, in the epilogue. On to the next book almost instantaneously. L
