Pedos don't give a DAMN about how they ruin children's lives!!!! This poor, poor little girl, not only part of a pedo ring, but her parent's were in on it, as well. Very heartbreaking!!! She had finally been removed from her parents' care (and I use the words loosely) and sent to live with a foster family. Cathy Glass did her best, but as the title reads, she was just damaged: Night terrors, flashbacks, hallucinations, and more. She didn't even know how to function like a normal 8yr old would!! Extremely sad!!!!

This is the first book in her series. Once you read it, you will be hooked! It can be heart warming and heart breaking but worth the read.
