    • I received this ARC complementary from Second Story PressFostergirls by Liane Shaw is a novel about a girl named Sadie who grew up in foster care, jumping from pseudofamily to pseudofamily until being placed in a group home This is the story of her thirteenth attempt at dealing with a new school, new guardians and a new roommate The first person perspective is what makes the book for me Being inside Sadie s mind is the best way to understand her avoidance of friendship and her difficulties with [...]

    • I liked the way that in this book Sadie, who is in the foster care system and newly living at a group home for girls, is portrayed in a way that realisticly fits with how guarded she is emotionally Unfortunately, that can leave her at times a little stiff seeming because she isn t in tune with her emotions However, we do see her grow, even if she doesn t realize it, through her actions as she makes connections with people.This book could go a long way toward teaching compassion and admiration fo [...]


    • Sadie thinks of herself as fostergirl That s what she gets called at all the new schools She s on home number 13 and it s a group home So now she s grouphomegirl She s almost 16 and she wants to become emancipated and work and live on her own She doesn t know anything about her family and she hates school All the pseudomoms pretend to be nice to her until she gets in trouble, then she s off to the next family She knows how it goes and this time won t be any different Except now there aren t any [...]


    • Not a great book in my opinion The storyline was good, Sadie is a foster girl who has been shuffled from place to place She hates school, has no friends and trusts no one With the help of a guidance counsellor, and someone determined to be her friend and a new foster home she begins to know herself and feel some self worth While I did enjoy the storyline, one that had a lot of potential and could have been much helpful to teens possibly experiencing similar experiences and feelings it didn t li [...]


    • I ve been reading a lot of YA fiction that addresses issues teens face recently This is an excellent example of what goes on inside the mind and heart of a kid in foster care the barriers to hold back hurt and rejection, the lack of trust that prevents bonding with people who really care and the belief that nobody can like you because your own family discarded you Sadie s stream of consciousness and way of looking at other people are very well done This is a very good book to be added to school [...]


    • Sadie has gone through foster home after foster home She is now trying to show that she is responsible and can stay out of trouble, in hopes of becoming emancipated As she tries the good girl routine, she receives push back from the other girls in her foster home and is drawn to the burn outs However, the big ball of sunshine, Rhiannon, pushes Sadie to stay on the straight and narrow and wants to be her best friend Sadie mistrusts Rhiannon and the concept of being the upstanding citizen she shou [...]


    • Sadie, after 12 different foster homes, is sent to a group home She thinks of herself as fostergirl or grouphomegirl She tries to stay detached from everyone around her, but a persistent classmate keeps insisting that they be friends Sadie just wants to be legally emancipated so she can live on her own She doesn t know how to react when classmate Rhiannon is nice to her, or when the guidance counselor wants to help her The book gives a realistic description of the hurt and destructive behavior t [...]


    • I sat down and actually read the whole book Sometimes it was a little slow for me, but things always picked up Good book for teens so they can learn what it would be like if they were in foster care I think people can learn from this book, and I think it can teach a lot This young foster girl never knew what to expect in life and knew not to take anything for granted because tomorrow could be different Was a good read.


    • Good edgy Not unlike The Language of Flowers, this also looks at the world of foster youth as well as foster parents families Ends on a hopeful note, but with much of the main character s future left to be resolved.


    • Not really spectacular in any way, but I thought there was something endearing about the main character despite her gruff, hostile exterior It was a solid story than many, and there aren t enough tales of foster children in YA.


    • The story of the girl is a very sad thing due to her constantly moving from house to house and having no real family nor friends to understand her till she moves to her new home which brings me joy to see her get emotionally attached to a character and almost finally stop holding back her emotions.


    • Once I got into this book it was really hard to put down until I finished it Very realistic portrayal of a teen in a group home depressing, yet hopeful



    • Abandoned by page 20 The main character, Sadie, has a horrible, horrible attitude that I wasn t willing to put up with for an entire book I m sure she changes, but that wasn t even the main reason I stopped reading When I came upon a bad word within the first 20 pages, I flipped ahead to see if I saw any I did Won t be finishing this.
