Emmy Rane is married at nineteen, a mother by twenty. Trapped in a life with a husband she no longer loves, Baby is her only joy. Then one sunny day in September, Emmy takes a few fateful steps away from her baby and returns to find her missing. All that is left behind is a yellow sock. Fourteen years later, Sophie, a homeschooled, reclusive teenage girl is forced to move frequently and abruptly from place to place, perpetually running from what her mother calls the "No Good." One afternoon, Sophie breaks the rules, ventures out, and meets Joey and his two aunts. It is this loving family that gives Sophie the courage to look into her past. What she discovers changes her world forever. . . . The riveting stories of Emmy and Sophie--alternating narratives of loss, imprisonment, and freedom regained--escalate with breathless suspense toward an unforgettable climax. Breathtaking in its beauty and with great heart, YOU ARE MY ONLY brings readers the story of a kidnapped young girl that they will never want to forget."  -- My Friend Amy  Breathtaking in its beauty and with great heart, YOU ARE MY ONLY brings readers the story of a kidnapped young girl that they will never want to forget."  -- My Friend Amy  Kephart's prose is poetry in motion--creating beauty out of everyday moments. --Family Circle   "Readers will eat up this realistic variant of the youthful fantasy about finally finding one's real parents and being properly appreciated."  -- The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books   "Kephart writes a psychologically taut novel.... readers will be on the edge of their seats." -- Publishers Weekly   "Intense and lovely" -- Kirkus Reviews   "Very intense psychological thriller" -- Bookslut   "A pint-sized powerhouse waiting to be devoured." --
