by Amy Goldman Koss (Goodreads Author)
Hillary Siegal and her footloose parents live on the road. To Hillary, each move is an escape from becoming one of the "sleepwalkers" she's seen at all of the seventeen schools she's attended. But then the Siegals land in Ashwater, California. And this time, they're staying put. Seventh grade isn't going to be a typical year for Hillary. What can she do if she can't run?

Although sometimes I felt like this was a little slow going, it showed a girl's reaction as she moved into a new school, made new friends, reconciled herself to her interests as opposed to the popular interests. There is a lot of character development, owing to her upbringing and ability to think outside of the box. A coming of age story.
An interseting read about a girl who comes from a Hippie type family that moves constantly and she learns what roots are all about. I found this interesting because I also came from a hippie family and moved more than 20 times during the years I was in school, so I could relate.
