Callie was kidnapped by her mom as a young child and lived a difficult life travelling around the country like a nomad. Now, at 17 years old, she has been found and returned to her father while her mother has been arrested for kidnapping her. The story is about her attempts to fit in with a new family and friends and adjust to a new town and way of life. She also has to struggle with her feelings towards her mom. As she learns that so much of what her mom told her was a lie and really begins to look at her mom's actions and behavior, she is both angry with her mom, but still loves her.
I really enjoyed this book. My heart really went out to Callie as she tried to adjust to her new world and do her best not to hurt anyone's feelings. I thought Trish Doller did a great job of setting up her life before she was returned to her father and gave a realistic picture of a teen going through such a dramatic life change.
