A foster child on track to finding her “forever home,” 12-year-old Pavi runs her own business (salary: Flamin’ Hot Cheetos and school supplies) offering help and reconnaissance for fellow foster kids given placements with new families.When Pavi learns that a young girl at her old shelter, named Meridee, has been placed with Pavi’s first (horrible) foster family, she goes on a mission to make sure Meridee is safe, at all costs. This book provides visibility and empathy to children in the system who often receive neither, and provides lessons to readers about what it’s really like to be a friendless or endangered child.
