Publisher Description

The true story of a 6-year-old boy with a dreadful secret.

Oskar’s school teacher raises the alarm. Oskar’s mother is abroad and he has been left in the care of ‘friends’, but has been arriving in school hungry, unkempt, and with bruises on his arms, legs and body. Experienced foster carer Cathy Glass is asked to look after him, but as the weeks pass her concerns deepen. Oskar is far too quiet for a child of six and is clearly scared of something or someone.

And who are those men parked outside his school watching him?

Too scared to tell

Cathy has been such an inspiration since I was 11 years of age. Her books never fail to connect in every aspect within communication, understanding emotions and a busy day to day life schedule. Cathy has proven to show herself in each book to just love any child for where they are at. In this book specifically Cathy shows patience, strength and a safe place for truths to be told and to feel vulnerable. These books have opened my eyes into understanding we all have a story and that is what makes us so unique. Cathy has inspired me to take my next steps with working with children and teens in the social work field. I couldn’t have been more blessed to have picked up one of her books and just read. Thank you Cathy not just from me but from each heart you have reached with your books. You have been such a miracle in my own life when I didn’t think I could reach out to share my story. Even tho you weren’t there I believe with your words , strength and wisdom influenced me to trust adults Another great read I can’t wait for your next release.
