A tender tween story about a girl who finds herself looking for a mom through forming friendships with inmates at her dad's prison. A bizarre yet convincing living arrangement (they live at the prison!) makes this coming-of-age story different and particularly heartfelt. Nice for readers of Judy Blume and Jerry Spinelli, and for those just beginning to explore themes of growing older and needing-yet-not-needing parents. Recommended for ages 8-11. ~ Reviewed by Aubrey Restifo
