Présentation de l'éditeur

Million-copy bestselling author Cathy Glass tells the story of Dawn, a sweet and seemingly well-balanced girl whose outward appearance masks a traumatic childhood of suffering at the hands of the very people who should have cared for her.

Dawn was the first girl Cathy Glass ever fostered. Sweet and seemingly well balanced girl, Dawn’s outward appearance masked a traumatic childhood so awful, that even she could not remember it.

During the first night, Cathy awoke to see Dawn looming above Cathy’s baby’s cot, her eyes staring and blank. She sleepwalks – which Cathy learns is often a manifestation in disturbed children. It becomes a regular and frightening occurrence, and Cathy is horrified to find Dawn lighting a match whilst mumbling it’s not my fault in her sleep one night.

Cathy discovers Dawn is playing truant from school, and struggling to make friends. More worryingly she finds her room empty one night, and her pillow covered in blood. Dawn has been self-harming in order to release the pain of her past.

When Dawn attempts suicide, Cathy realises that she needs more help than she can give. Dawn’s mother eventually confides in her that Dawn was sent away to live with relatives in Ireland between the ages of 5 and 9, and Cathy soon realises that the horrors Dawn was exposed to during this time have left her a very disturbed little girl.

Fantastic book, I love cathy glass stories I have just bought another one. She is an inspiration it's a pity social services didn't have the same commitment for these children in need of help. Speaking as an adoptive parent.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Cathy Glass's "Cut" 24 janvier 2013
Par Gretchen Stull - Publié sur

A story that is hard to read (in terms of subject matter), and yet worth the effort. Dawn is the second child Cathy Glass and her husband fostered, and she's a very disturbed girl. Rejected by her parents and running from secrets she believes are too horrible to redeem, Dawn is broken and lost. At 13 she stays out all night, drinks, cuts herself, skips school, and attempts suicide more than once. But she can also be a pleasant and agreeable child who shows affection and seeks the approval of her caregivers.

This story is easy to read in terms of language choice and narrative flow, and difficult in terms of subject matter. Seeing Dawn's story unfold and feeling Cathy's love, concern, frustration, and despair provides a visceral, moving experience. I felt for Cathy, sympathizing with her desire to provide Dawn the loving, stable environment the girl desperately needed, but unable to overcome a broken system and even more broken girl. I was frustrated for her, John, and Barbara. I felt each of them wanted what was best for Dawn, even Barbara, in her own flawed way. But the system, meant to help threatened and disadvantaged children, seemed to do more harm than good. My heart broke for Dawn, and the more Cathy revealed about her past, the more I hoped she would somehow be able to turn it all around and claim the happy life she deserved.

While I enjoyed the story a great deal, I can only give 4 stars because I felt Glass occasionally went into far too much detail. There's a fine line between providing enough detail to orient the reader fully within with story, and too much detail. I felt a number of the instances of "I did this, followed by this, followed by this" neither advanced the plot nor revealed necessary information about the people involved. I found there were passages I wanted to skip just to get back to the plot, and that was discouraging.

Certainly a book that makes you pause and look at troubled teenagers through a different set of lenses. "Cut" is not only well written, it is completely engrossing. You will cry, laugh, and learn to love along with Cathy as she tries desperately to parent Dawn. A great read!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 look into foster care 9 février 2012
Par A. Starkey - Publié sur
Having been a foster parent in the United States, I can relate to Cathy's portrayal of how social workers "dump" teens on unsuspecting caregivers without telling the whole story, and how they ignore the possible harm that can come to your own children. In addition, she details how frequently the demands of the teen is considered more important than the normal houserules of the foster parents.

Cut is a story of one teen who has extremely serious issues that is placed with Cathy, who has a newborn of her own. The social worker REFUSES to allow any disclosurwe of the true events that caused her to come into the system in the first place, and basically allows the teen to make up her own rules such as being allowed to be out for periods where she does not have to account for her whereabouts.

Although some of the problems have recently been resolved (dumping kids without proper background information}, the overworked social workers who have to find homes for unwanted children in a system that is already overloaded and understaffed still exists.

In "Cut," Cathy tells the story of one 13 year old who had a past that created such severe problems in her that the child could be considered unsafe in a "normal" home. The way Cathy and her husband stuck it out and worked with this child is amazing. Cathy does an amazing job of telling the story in such a way that the reader can feel the severe pressure of all involved - the family, the child, the social workers, etc.

All of Cathy's books should be read by anyone considering becoming a foster parent, because they allow readers to see the dedication that is required, how they may have to fight "the system," and finally, how those who can handle the stress can help a child turn their lives around.

This book kept me reading till the end! BEING in foster care myself I decided to give it a try and see a foster moms point view. Made me think again and really realize how good my foster mom I have been blaming is.

This book is absolutely amazing. I wanted to finish it all at once. The devotion "Cathy" and "Jon" demonstrated to "Dawn" is inspiring. I am not sure when this actually took place however it is intersting to see how the foster care system has changed as well as how it contrats with that of England. As a student working toward an MSW with a background in counseling adolescents this book was very real on the pain teens are going through today. Parents have a high calling and this book demonstrates the need all the more as it draws our attention to NSSI/SIB more commonly known as "cutting". You most likely know a cutter!
