This was my first time ever picking up a book by Cathy Glass, and I managed to finish this book in about 4 hours in one sitting.

I found this story to be absolutely heart wrenching, and difficult to put down, once you get into it..The beginning started off a little slow but, then picked up pace about three chapters in. About halfway through the story, things started becoming clearer, and then suddenly the revelation of, and the full horror of what has happened to this poor girl, hits the reader all at once.

Cathy Glass's writing is very easy to understand and to read, it flows along easily as well. There are not a lot of unnecessary descriptions, and the chapters are rather short. Therefore, the story moves along at a nice pace.

I recommend this book to anybody who enjoys reading true stories about children in foster care, and the problems that they must overcome in their lives. ( )

Cathy Glass, international bestselling author, tells the shocking story of Zeena, a young Asian girl desperate to escape from her family.

When 14 -year-old Zeena begs to be taken into care with a non-Asian family, she is clearly petrified. But of what?

Placed in the home of experienced foster carer Cathy and her family, Zeena gradually settles into her new life, but misses her little brothers and sisters terribly. Prevented from having any contact with them by her family who insist she has brought shame and dishonour on the whole community, Zeena tries to see them at school. But when her father and uncle find out, they bundle her into a car and threaten to set fire to her if she makes anymore trouble. Zeena is too frightened to press charges against them despite being offered police protection in a safe house.

Eventually, Cathy discovers the devastating truth from Zeena, and with devastation she believes there is little she can do to help her.
