    So far this book tells the story of a girl who after her mother had yet another fit in public is whistked away to a home full of girls and one old women called the Kinting Lady and right now there is no plot T.TOkay, so im finally done with it, and i have to say its an okay summer read once you have read EVERYTHING ELSE AND THERE IS NOTHING ELSE TO READ lol, but if u ppl like stuffs like this then go for it, not holding you back at all.

    Cal is taken away from her bipolar Mom after an incident at the library She is put in a group home with other girls, knowing she was sure to be back with Betty, her Mom, soon Slowly, she learns about herself, her housemates and the social work system A bit sad, but just right for the age group.Family booklist.

    Cal Lavender s mother had an episode in a library and now she finds herself in a group foster Home a temporary interruption in what she calls life Mainly features the allegorical tale told by the Home s old, stuttering, wise patrona, the Knitting Lady, about her own mother s journey on an orphan train Rather clunky.


  7. Mochizuki Mochizuki says:

    What I Call Life is about a growing youngster her experiences and relationships with others in a foster home, even though she still has a mother The characters all girls have hopes and dreams and plans for making the future a better place.I recommend it highly, especially for girls around 10 to 14.


  8. Deborah Deborah says:
