Normally I do read fiction books and I find this genre of books quite interesting. The characters in this book are Lucy (main character), Sarah, Zach, Gray, Miranda, Leo, and Soledad. My favorite character of the book is Lucy Scarborough, because her character overcomes many tasks, and she shows her strength and compassion throughout the story. The author unfolds the story by starting from the beginning of Lucy’s fate. Miranda Lucy’s biological mother fell into insanity when Lucy was born due to a curse that runs through Lucy’s family that only her and her foster parents know about.

When my grandmother called me, I’d say, ‘Yes ma’am.’ I wanted to say, ‘Why do you hit me? Am I really a bad child? Why do you treat me like I’m not part of your family?’” As I’m reading his story he has a very remarkable story in my opinion, and he’s a perfect reason we need to change this system. He wanted to tell the cops or his social worker but he was afraid to because he would be hit by his foster grandma. For some children this may not even work but it is definitely worth a shot to help these kids like Deshon.

In this book she names a lot of people and it is hard to keep up with all of them, but a couple of people stand out to me. The first person who stood out to me would be her daughter, Deborah.
