When Jaden and his parents must go to Kazakhstan to adopt a new baby, Jaden feels worse than ever. Adopted at age 8, Jaden doesn't know why or how his parents love him: he has rages, starts fires in the house, and is always seeing a new therapist. Yet as things go wrong and become increasingly strange abroad, Jaden starts to see himself--and the new baby-- in a different light. Moving and heartwarming, this is an excellent story for tweens and teens looking for a more moving read. Fans of realistic fiction and family stories will love it. ~ Reviewed by Aubrey Restifo
