What I Carry

Growing up in foster care, Muir has lived in many houses. And if she's learned one thing, it is to Pack. Light. Carry only what fits in a suitcase. Toothbrush? Yes. Socks? Yes. Emotional attachment to friends? foster families? a boyfriend? Nope! There's no room for any additional baggage.

Muir has just one year left before she ages out of the system. One year before she's free. One year to avoid anything — or anyone — that could get in her way. Then she meets Francine. And Kira. And Sean. And everything changes.

For readers of Robin Benway's Far from the Tree comes a powerful and heartwarming look at a teen girl about to age out of the foster care system, a reminder of the importance of relationships and the power of deciding to let people in.

Description

"In an effort to have some control over her life’s uncertainties, Muir has also mastered keeping people at arm’s length by being helpful, staying out of trouble, and keeping her grades up. She’s not so good at making friends, trusting people, and talking about her feelings.... Longo (Up to this Pointe), a foster and adoptive parent, wrote the book for her adopted daughter, who wanted a 'hopeful, happy' tale; she provides it — and the book, well-written and heartfelt, is a pleasure." — Publishers Weekly
