Description
H " Flake's strength . . . Lies in developing genuine, believable adults and children. " -BCCB (starred review) H " Flake's charged, infectious dialogue will sweep readers through the first-person story. " -Booklist (starred review) Fourteen-year-old Raspberry Hill is still struggling to find security in her life. More than anything, she wants a father who will love and protect her, like Zora's dad. When her mother is attacked, Raspberry does the unthinkable: she steals money from Zora, her best friend. It's only when her thieving, drug-addicted father returns that Raspberry begins to wonder whether betraying Zora will cost her more than she can ever repay. Is Raspberry destined to follow in her father's footsteps? Raspberry is certain. Something's got to change.
