Summary
After her father dies, Jill MacSweeney isolates herself from friends and family and when her Mom decides to adopt a baby, nothing makes sense anymore. Meanwhile, Mandy Kalinowski, brought up by a single mother who never wanted her, needs to find a home for her unborn baby. Together, they must learn to trust, love, and survive anew.
Critique
A great teen novel: complex with strong characters and no easy answers. Highly recommended.
