Summary
Ginny Moon is a 14-year-old with autism who was in the foster system for years before finally being adopted by her “forever" family. In part prompted by the arrival of the birth of her “forever" mom's new baby, Ginny desperately begins trying to reunite with her potentially dangerous birth mom in order to reclaim her own "Baby Doll," who Ginny believes needs to be taken care of.
Critique
Told entirely in the voice of Ginny, this interpretation of the thoughts of a traumatized autistic girl is an eye opening and heart-warming story about love and family. Readers, like Ginny's forever parents, will be exasperated by Ginny's one-track mind, but this only adds a level of suspense and keeps the pages turning.
