A Million Ways Home by Dianna Dorisi Winget
Now we are back into good solid Mid-G reading. This story is written in first person past tense, told through the eyes of twelve-year-old Poppy who is spunky and impulsive. Poppy has been placed with social services because her grandmother is in the hospital. The ongoing theme throughout this story, in a multitude of relationships, is redemption and release, a process that allows new life to begin. Interestingly the cover and the title seem to have little connection to the story.
