Publisher's Summary

For fans of Robin Benway's Far from the Tree, a powerful and heartwarming look at a teen girl about to age out of the foster care system.

Growing up in foster care, Muir has lived in many houses. And if she's learned one thing, it is to Pack. Light. Carry only what fits in a suitcase.

Toothbrush? Yes. Socks? Yes. Emotional attachment to friends? Foster families? A boyfriend? Nope! There's no room for any additional baggage.

Muir has just one year left before she ages out of the system. One year before she's free. One year to avoid anything - or anyone - that could get in her way. 

Then she meets Francine. And Kira. And Sean.

And everything changes.

Enlightening

I loved the author's descriptiveness. Listen to her note at the end. She did her homework for this book.

Thank You

A story that truly speaks the story of real foster kids! I also fell in love Muir’s character and name! I maybe naming a child Muir in the future! I wish these books and stories had found me as a teenager. When your in the system it feels like no one else “gets it,” but Muir, she got it!

A feel good story.

This was a world that I knew existed, but really knew nothing about. items that can mean the world to some and nothing to someone else. This is a story that holds your heart.
