Poppy Parker is an impulsive twelve year old girl who’s life has spun out of control when her grandmother, and legal guardian, suffers a stroke and has to be hospitalized. With no other family around, Poppy is sent off to a children’s center where the showers are cold, the food is gross, and the air is stale. As if things can’t get any worse, while sneaking away from the center one day to visit her grandmother, she witnesses a horrible crime and becomes the only person who can identify the suspect. Since Poppy’s life is in danger, she is now forced into a “witness protection program”, which consists of living with the detective in charge’s mother and a host of rescue animals. Will Poppy’s grandmother ever be well enough to take care of her again? Will the police catch the criminal that has made her life miserable, and if they do, will she have to go back to the horrible children’s center again? Pick up a copy of A Million Ways Home to find out the answers to these questions and so much more! (Prepared by: Michelle Woodyard, Rosewood Elementary, , South Carolina Book Awards 2017)
