Peas and Carrots
Bargain Book Copy
A rich and memorable story from a Coretta Scott King honor award-winning author about a teenage foster girl looking for a place to call home.
Dess knows that nothing good lasts. Disappointment is never far away, and that's a truth that Dess has learned to live with.
Dess's mother's most recent arrest is just the latest in a long line of disappointments, but this one lands her with her baby brother's foster family. Dess doesn't exactly fit in with the Carters. They're so happy, so comfortable, so normal, and Hope, their teenage daughter, is so hopelessly na#65533;ve. Dess and Hope couldn't be more unlike each other, but Austin loves them both like sisters. Over time their differences, insurmountable at first, fall away to reveal two girls who want the same thing: to belong.
Tanita S. Davis, a Coretta Scott King Honor winner, weaves a tale of two modern teenagers defying stereotypes and deciding for themselves what it means to be a family.
