Acclaimed YA novelist Coe Booth makes her middle-grade debut.

Jarrett is used to his mom taking in foster kids. But they're all - every single one of them - infants or babies, and they never stay for long. Not until Kevon and his sister come to stay. The sister is fine; she's just a baby. But Kevon is Jarrett's age, and that is NOT okay with Jarrett. He wants Kevon out of his house as soon as possible. But the more he tries to get rid of Kevon, the more he becomes enmeshed in Kevon's life and his history - which leads, ultimately, to some unexpected understanding.

excellent book

Coe Booth knocks it out of the park again in her first book for younger readers. Jarrett, with all his frustrations, anger, and fears, will resonate with kids on the cusp of becoming teenagers. Booth has a real knack for understanding what drives kids and teens to act the way they do, and this realistic look at modern families helps fill a huge void for inner city readers looking for books that reflect their realities. Very well written with obvious respect for the book's characters and readers alike. Highly recommended.
