Summary
In this beautifully constructed middle-grade novel, told half in prose and half in verse, Lauren prides herself on being a good sister, and Sierra is used to taking care of her mom. When Lauren's parents send her brother to a therapeutic boarding school for teens on the autism spectrum and Sierra moves to a foster home in Lauren's wealthy neighborhood, both girls are lost until they find a deep bond with each other. But when Lauren recruits Sierra to help with a Robin Hood scheme to raise money for autistic kids who don't have her family's resources, Sierra has a lot to lose if the plan goes wrong. Lauren must learn that having good intentions isn't all that matters when you battle injustice, and Sierra needs to realize that sometimes, the person you need to take care of is yourself.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Lauren and Sierra are both 12 years old, but they're from completely different worlds. Sierra cares for her alcoholic mother while they're constantly on the move. Lauren lives in a wealthy suburb and wants for nothing, except maybe to have her autistic brother back home rather than in a boarding school for students on the spectrum. After Sierra is placed in a foster home next door to Lauren, they attend the same private school and become fast friends. Then Lauren becomes so obsessed with raising money to help autistic children who can't afford services that she sells some of her possessions, then shoplifts and steals from her friends and their families. Sierra is not happy about being drawn in as an unwilling accomplice, but she doesn't know what to do or whom to trust. Sierra's narrative, in poetry, captures her spare, cautious, and constrained life. Lauren's prose is rich and descriptive, much like her own experiences.Together, the contrasting narratives tell a touching story about friendship, loyalty, and resilience that will have lots of appeal.--Scanlon, Donna Copyright 2018 Booklist"
