Amanda Long | 8 comments Hello, I am looking for a book that I would have read around 2005 although it definitely not new at that time so published sometime before that. I would like to read this book again so any help in figuring out who the author is or what the title is would be greatly appreciated.

The book starts out with a young teen girl whose mother dies in their apartment and the girl leaves and watched the ambulance take her mother from across the street to avoid being taken by child services. The girl is now homeless and I believe she lives in an old abandoned car for a bit at some point. I also remember she somehow met this old cranky lady in her house and ended up staying with the old lady and helping her with things around the house. I know the story has its up and downs but I believe it has a happy ending.

I don't know how helpful this will be, but I seem to remember the book having a blue soft cover. Any help would be great! Thank you!

Set a particular time and place? Country/region/city etc.
Author female or male?
Remember the cover?


Amanda Long | 8 comments The setting of the story was a city, maybe New York or similar city no earlier than 1990 for time setting I would guess. Unfortunately I do not remember much about the cover except that it may be dark blue.


Amanda Long | 8 comments Bump.
