Publisher's Summary

Cathy Glass, international best-selling 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.

Interesting in parts.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I found this book quite boring and repetitive in parts.

If you’ve listened to books by Cathy Glass before, how does this one compare?

This was the first by Cathy Glass.

How could the performance have been better?

The voices of the daughters were so annoying and loud.

If this book were a film would you go see it?


Any additional comments?

I found the book became quite boring until Zeena revealed what had happened to her and then it was hard to put it down.
