Convince us to read the book:  I  liked this book, but I didn't love it.  It was... interesting.  There's really no other way to describe it.  The main character, Carey, and her little sister, Jenessa, lived in an old, worn down, broken camper in the woods, until her father and a social worker find her because her mother gave them up.  Carey has to learn how to be a 15 yr. old girl in modern society with a snotty stepsister and a sister who hasn't said a word out loud in over a year.
Memorable or Forgettable:  I really don't have a side. It wasn't amazing, yet it wasn't horrible
Cover:  I thought it was an interesting cover.
Age Range: 12 through 17
Quality: 4Q Better than most
Popularity: 4P Broad general teen appeal
