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.

RJ Palacio's White Bird is what we need right now: it's a painful reminder of the past that finds present-day solutions in kindness. It'll make your heart race as it points you towards a productive reminder of what we can be when we stand up to the world. I wish it didn't feel so urgent, but reading this gave me hope.
