Ginny Moon is mostly your average teenager. She plays flute in the school band, has weekly basketball practice, and reads Robert Frost poems for English class. But Ginny is autistic. So what’s important to her might seem a bit different.

After being traumatically taken from her abusive birth mother and moved around to different homes, Ginny has finally found her "forever home" — a safe place with parents who will love and nurture her. This is exactly what all foster kids are hoping for, right?

But Ginny has other plans. She’ll steal and lie and exploit the good intentions of those who love her — anything it takes to get back what’s missing in her life. She’ll even try to get herself kidnapped.

Told in an extraordinary and original voice, Ginny Moon is quirky, charming, bighearted, poignant — and heartbreaking.
