Description

From Clementine author Sara Pennypacker, this is a poignant middle-grade novel about two foster children who must find a way to work together in order to survive.

Eleven-year-old Stella misses her (unreliable) mom, but she loves it at great-aunt Louise's house. Louise lives on Cape Cod, where Stella hopes her mom will someday come and settle down. The only problem? Angel, the foster kid Louise has taken in. The two girls live together but there's no way they'll ever be friends. Then Louise suddenly passes away one morning--and Stella and Angel decide not to tell anyone. Now they have to depend on each other for survival. Now they are forced to trust each other with the biggest secret ever.

With great empathy and humor, Sara Pennypacker tells the story of two very different girls who unexpectedly become each other's true family.

display_description Living with her Great-aunt Louise on the shores of Cape Cod, Stella finds that Louise likes routine just as much as she does. Stella's mother lacks reliability, so she is off finding herself while Stella hopes she will be able to settle back at Cape Cod. The only hitch in a perfect life so far is Angel, Louise's less-than-angelic foster kid. When Stella and Angel are forced into a situation where Louise cannot help them, they find that they have come to rely on each other more than either of them thought possible.
