** spoiler alert ** This is book is about a 14 years old girl named LaVaughn. In her life, her only dream is to make college reality for her. In order to do that, LaVaughn takes up a part-time job as a babysitter. Jolly is an abused 17 years old mother. She had two children and lives in a low income apartment. LaVaughn knew that this wasn't an easy job from the beginning. But she soon learns about Jolly's past. LaVaughn found it quite shocking to hear from Jolly that she was an abandoned orphan who lived in a cardboard box with her brothers. Jolly does everything she can to help her children, Jilly and Jack, and LaVaughn starts to care for them and gives them hope so they can have a better life.
