Finished Peas and Carrots by Tanita S. Davis.
Dess (short for Odessa) has just gotten a new foster home. She lives with her biological brother Austin (he’s been there for years and is the reason she’s been placed there), a sick baby named Jamaira and Hope (her foster parents’ daughter). Dess and Hope immediately clash although eventually they learn they have a lot in common (including Austin).
I really like this book. Dess and Hope are richly drawn characters and I love Austin and Hope’s parents.
This is the kind of book that just makes you like people. Recommended.
