THE VERY WORST THING
New York : HarperCollins,
IL 5-8, RL 6.0
has been in and out of foster homes for as long as he can remember.
He and his sister Lily were taken away from their mother a long time ago.
Since then, they were shuffled from home to home. During these moves,
David has compiled a list of the very worst things in his life. But
this new move may turn out to be on the top of the list. Lily is
not going with him. She has run away too many times and now she is
in juvenile detention so David is on his own. But things seem pretty
much the same. A new school. No friends. Beaten up by
bullies. But things may be different after all. When David takes
the responsibility of hatching an owl egg, he looks forward to finally
having something of his own. But will this home be any different?
Will things turn out just as they always do?
