|Seventeen-year-old Fern has not had an easy life. She struggles at school and lives with her mother in a roach-infested apartment where break-ins are common and the neighbors are unfriendly. Despite these challenges the two of them are managing to cope, but then Fern''s mother suddenly has a heart attack and dies, and Fern is left utterly alone. She''s a survivor, and not afraid of hard work, but how does a 17-year-old with no skills support herself? Using only her resourcefulness and resolve, Fern fights to create a new life, and just when things seem about to unravel, she discovers that she is not really on her own after all.|
From the Publisher:
Struggling just to get by day-to-day, 17-year-old Fern's main source of happiness is the constant reassurance of her hard-working mother, but when her mother suddenly dies Fern must find a way to survive in the real world on her own.
