Book review: Finding stevie, a dark secret, a child in crisis

This is a book by author Cathy glass. Cathy glass is a Uk foster parent. She writes about her foster kids and her experience of fostering them.

Summary

Finding Stevie is a dark and poignant true story that highlights the dangers lurking on online.

When Stevies social worker tells Cathy, an experienced foster carer, that Stevie, 14, is gender fluid she isnt sure what that term means and looks it up.

Stevie, together with his younger brother and sister, have been brought up by their grandparents, as their mother is in prison. But the grandparents can no longer cope with Stevies behaviour, so they place him in care.

Stevie is exploring his gender identity, and like many young people he spends time online. Cathy warns him about the dangers of talking to strangers online and advises him how to stay safe. When his younger siblings tell their grandmother that they have a secret they cant tell, Cathy is worried. However, nothing could have prepared her for the truth when Stevie finally breaks down and confesses what hes done.
