A moving debut novel about a foster child learning to open her heart to a family's loveCarley uses humor and street smarts to keep her emotional walls high and thick. But the day she becomes a foster child, and moves in with the Murphys, she's blindsided. This loving, bustling family shows Carley the stable family life she never thought existed, and she feels like an alien in their cookie-cutter-perfect household. Despite her resistance, the Murphys eventually show her what it feels like to belong—until her mother wants her back and Carley has to decide where and how to live. She's not really a Murphy, but the gifts they've given her have opened up a new future.

What a heart-wrenching, heart-warming, beautiful story. This book had me thinking about it long after I finished it. There are no words to fully describe how special this book is. You just have to read it-it's a quick read and couldn't be more worth it.
It's beautiful.

What a beautiful, sad and very hopeful book about unconditional love. I fell a little in love with the Murphy's as well.

My 10 years old son is very picky about his books. He picked this book from school out of no other choices and he absolutely enjoyed this. He finished in 3 days and he said the ending was sad but nevertheless it was a good read.
