There are always many challenges when you try to better yourself, but I feel it is always worth it to try. *This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.*

Casey unexpectedly comes in contact with two lost young boys, looking for a bus station. Endeared by their tears and obvious panic, she decides to help, and sets herself off on a path that will change her life completely. The boys are

Nice story but main characters a little flowery. Interesting setting in Oregon. I would give this book a 3.
