Fifteen-year-old Lucky loves her grandparents. True, her grandmother forgets things... like turning off the stove, or Lucky's name. But her grandfather takes such good care of them that Lucky doesn't realize how bad things are--until she loses her grandfather and is left caring for her grandmother on her own. When her grandma sets the kitchen on fire, Lucky can't hide what's happening any longer, and she is sent into foster care. She quickly learns that some foster families are okay. Some aren't. And some really, really aren't. But none of these places is home.
