I enjoy reading fostering memoirs and have read quite a few now by Cathy Glass, as well as a few other authors. For that reason, there did seem to be a bit of repetition here, for me. I think it's inevitable, and indeed, can be useful to other readers who might not have read any of her books before. That way, you can read them in any order. I mean the kinds of things like how she tells us she has to keep a log of every happening, every day for each of her charges; how they have to have reviews, dental appointments, medical checks etc., how she is a specialist carer etc. So, not necessarily a bad thing-just that I'd seen all this info before as I'd read more by Cathy Glass.
Although not her best, this was still a good read. I was wondering what would happen and would not have realised. Also, I may have found it difficult to believe had I not seen a case in the news where a woman also had the same happen, at a very young age-which is unusual-the lady in the news had some genetic factor involved. So, I could totally understand and get my emotions involved. What a tragic case.
