There’s nothing lucky about your family falling apart.
Lucky loves her grandparents, and they are all the family she really has. True, her grandma forgets things … like turning off the stove, or Lucky’s name. But her grandpa takes such good care of them that Lucky doesn’t realize how bad things are. That is until he’s gone. When her grandma accidentally 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.
Is it possible to find a home again when the only one you’ve ever known has been taken from you?

“An uplifting and hopeful #ownvoices novel revealing the complexities of foster care and the heartbreak of dementia.” — Kirkus Reviews
