The new novel from Jill Wolfson - an exciting, fresh voice in middle-grade fiction
Whitney has been in so many foster homes that she can give a complete rundown on the most common varieties of foster parents - from the look-on-the-bright-side types to those unfortunate examples of pure evil. But one thing she doesn't know much about is trees. This means heading for Foster Home number 12 (which is all the way at the top of the map of California, where there looks to be nothing but trees) has Whitney feeling a little nervous. She is pretty sure that the middle of nowhere is going to be just one more place where a hyper, loud-mouthed kid who is messy and small for her age won't be welcome for long.
Jill Wolfson has woven together the stories of an irrepressible foster child and a deeply divided small town with incredible humor and compassion.

A great way to spin facts into fiction
The Author has done a great job of using truths into a fiction story. It is an easy way to digest a lot of facts about foster care and the impact on all family members, especially siblings and the school environment. Great read for 10years and up, I am 47years old and loved it. Has a feel like reading Matilda: Funny but with a moving story.
