Not a great book in my opinion. The storyline was good, Sadie is a "foster girl" who has been shuffled from place to place. She hates school, has no friends and trusts no one. With the help of a guidance counsellor, and someone determined to be her friend and a new foster home she begins to know herself and feel some self worth. While I did enjoy the storyline, one that had a lot of potential and could have been much more helpful to teens possibly experiencing similar experiences and feelings it didn't live up to its potential nor was i fond of the writing. While it is narrated by Sadie and therefore in her words, some of the words used in conversation and in her thoughts just didn't belong and sounded unbelievable. It was a quick read but not a memorable one.
