really liked it

This was a great book. Its about a girl, Astrid, whose self-absorbed mother goes to jail for murder. Astrid then starts her journey through the foster care system and its about how her life changes throughout that journey. The book was wonderfully detailed. As I read I really felt for Astrid in some of her situations and it seemed like, even in an apparent good home, things weren't as they seemed. She was a young girl that had to deal with a lot and I really empathized with the character.
