Brittany is a big sister with an even bigger problem, how will she keep her baby sister from being taken away? This charming title looks at the life of a surrogate family from the point of view of a young girl about to lose her baby sister, Dori. Dori, a Native American, was given to their care when her mother was unable to take care of her as an infant. Now she has to go back to this mother. How can Brittany and her family let her go?
This title does a nice job to briefly discussing stereotypes, their harm and lasting effects. The narrator is touching in her love for her family, however the other characters were not as well fleshed out. This story has many good discussion starters and, at times, may bring a tear to your eye. All in all a fitting read for students of all ages, perhaps a nice choice for adopted children or those in foster care.
