SRP 2011 REVIEW: I especially like this book because it's nice to see the main character, Lonnie, getting over all those disadvantages and sadness, even if his sister and he lost their parents, or his sister and he is torn apart because they both got to get different foster mamas. The author is trying to tell peace is the thing that makes everything work well.
