For years, Jane’s mom told her horror stories about her time spent in foster care. Now she’s determined to keep her little sister from suffering the same fate.
Seventeen-year-old Jane Sanders has had to take care of her alcoholic mother and little sister, Abby, since her dad died seven years ago. And now Mom had to go and die too. Authorities determine it was a homeless transient who died in the fire of the old manufacturing plant, but Jane knows the truth.
There is no way she’s going to let Abby go into foster care which leaves her with one option—fake her mom’s life. As far as Abby knows, their mom is in rehab. And Jane wants to keep it that way. She’d be eighteen in a few months then she could become legal guardian to her sister. With the help of her best friend, Clark, it should be easy, right?
Juggling nosy neighbors, a concerned school counselor, and an oblivious new boyfriend turns out to be harder than Jane thought. But the real problem begins when Abby starts writing letters to Mom. Through Abby’s letters, Jane sees a different side to their mom—a side she could have loved. And loving Mom is something she didn’t plan on. Because loving somebody makes it harder to ignore their death.
A MUST read
This book is fabulous. The author does a wonderful job at making you feel like you are right there with the characters. Whether they are dealing with the in's and outs of high school, sorting out their own life purpose, or dealing with loss in their own way, you will feel like you are there.
I think this book is a must read, especially for teenagers and young adults. It shows you how God is there watching out for you even when you don't see it or might not understand what is happening around you.
I feel this book will resonate with people of all ages, not just teens and young adults. It speaks to what we are all looking for...Love from each other and ultimately love from God.
