This book has been my favorite for a while. A very relateable story to any child who's parents suffer from a divorce. Addie goes through being left alone at her rv/house for days on end without knowing where her mother is. To trying to live with her father and step mom. A very heart warming story that shows how strong a child can be that's going through many problems on their own. Deffinitely a must read.

I cried reading this book. It was written really well for a heart warming story, I dont
mean that sarcastically since nowhere in the story is there depressing imagery. I would suggest this book to anyone.
