This book really tugged at my heart. It is about a young boy that was in foster care. He didn't remember his parents but his sister did. He had a list he kept in his head of the worst things. The number one worst thing was nothing - having nothing of your very own. He didn't even have his own bed or bike. Wherever he stayed he had to borrow things that belonged to the other kids. This time around he got placed with an older woman called "Granny" and his sister got placed in a home because she kept running away. It was a lot different living there because he was used to living in the city. He had a hard time fitting in at school as usual but this time he made a friend. When he found an owl egg a girl from his class said her family had an incubator and after learning what they could they were finally able to hatch the owl egg. He soon learned though that his list was going to change because the very worst thing was losing the very best thing.
