What Readers are Saying:
“I loved the dynamic between Wanda and her BFF, Rosa. They grew up in foster care together and had each other’s backs no matter what. This was a quick read, more like a short story. It held my attention and gave some good info on the foster care system. I expect nothing less when I read a novel by Yecheilyah.”
“Most people can relate to the lives of many of the characters in this book. Everyone in the story had a fight of their own. Some fights were apparent & could be overcome through decisions, processes & time (Wanda /Ms. L/ Neighbors), some fights would have to be lived through from day to day (Rosa) and other fights were internal, hidden, & may never truly be acknowledged (Ms. C). I truly enjoyed this short story.”
