Kleenex alert … I was blind-sided by this book, which was so easy to read, so simply written. The story revolves around Joseph, a 13-year-old boy and father, yes father, who is put into Maine’s foster care system. He needs a shot at redemption, and his foster family is up to the task; he desires to see his infant daughter, whom he’s never met.
I did not see the ending coming. I want to read everything by Gary D. Schmidt.
