Waive’s mother has died and she is unsure where she will live and how she will survive. She is sent to live with her Aunt, Samantha Rose, in Conley Hallow in the Appalachian Hills, the same town that her mother was so desperate to leave. Her aunt only takes her because of the social security checks. Waive must find her own way in a world that was setup against her.
This is an amazing story of courage and compassion. Although, the premise of this story is sad, it truly is a wonderful book about love, bravery and kindness and has a wonderful ending. Waive finds some amazing friends and forms her own family based on love. I love the audio version of this book and would recommend this book to any middle school child.
