A nice addition to any library.

by AnchorageSchools (WorldCat user published 2010-03-06) Good Permalink

     A girl who has grown up in the foster system finds a foster mother who needs her and deals with a family who wants her to be part of it. A lot of flashbacks as she comes to realize that she is not responsible for everyone and she can be taken care of and loved.
