Beschreibung

A boy unites an immigrant community and rebuilds his family-using a simple sourdough bread recipe.
Eliot Winston, a grieving son, must convince his new step-mother - now Griff Winston's widow - to adopt him. But when she married Griff Winston, Marj hadn't bargained on being the single mother of a twelve-year-old boy. Alli Flynn, a foster child new to the school, convinces Eliot that he must fight to keep his family intact and the best way to do that is to help Mrs. Winston with the Bread Project, a fund raising project for the school. With his whole future at stake, Eliot tries hard to please Marj; but as the deadlines near for the Bread Project and for Marj to sign his adoption papers, Eliot finds it harder and harder to hang on to hope.
In the tradition of Dicey's Song by Cynthia Voigt, this story follows two kids who search for a family and a home.

Klappentext

Pattison's characters provide a reason to keep reading. In voices old before their time, due to years in the system, they describe their desperate attempts to stay relevant to the adults in their lives. A rare book featuring foster kids in realistic scenarios. - Booklist
