Summary
Lucy, a former foster child, is a devoted pediatrician at a clinic that treats potential and current foster children. Her past informs her life in suburbia as the wife of a professor and parent to her wise preteen Isabel and her brilliant but socially awkward son, Freddy. When Delia, a troubled mother, leaves her small children at the clinic, Lucy is forced to intervene.
Critique
Filled with humor and heart, this novel is less action filled and more a dialogue about contemporary parenting.
