Chastity Pureheart has no idea what her real name is, who her father is, or why she and her mother are always on the run. Every time Chastity and her mother take off for a new city, they follow a very specific ritual to choose a new identity. Chass, having just turned sixteen, finds herself alone in High Hopes, Alabama. Her mom has disappeared, and foul play is suspected. Chastity needs to find her mother and figure out why she ran off, and she only has six days to do this if she wants to avoid being placed in foster care. Students who enjoy mysteries or forensic crime shows will enjoy reading to find out if and how Chastity is able to locate her mother.  (Prepared by: Pam Lorentz for SCASL Young Adult Awards, 2008)
