Editorial Reviews

Review

"This is truly Georgina's story, and to O'Connor's great credit, it's Georgina herself who figures out what's right and does it.  The myriad effects of homelessness and the realistic  picture of moral quandary will surely generate discussion."  --Booklist "A suspenseful and achingly realistic story."  --Kirkus Reviews
