Product description

A Newbery Honor winner’s touching tale of hope beyond homelessness. Will you just look at that gorgeous puppy on the cover? When Sugar’s grandpa dies and her gambling father takes off, Sugar and her mum lose their home in Missouri. They head to Chicago for a fresh start, only to discover that fresh starts aren’t so easy to come by when you’re homeless. But Sugar’s mother has taught her to be grateful no matter what. And with the help of a caring foster family, a love of poetry and a tiny brown-and-white puppy, Sugar comes to accept that life is tough – but also sweet.

“Sugar’s anger, fear, humility, and resolve are portrayed with insight and compassion.” Publishers Weekly
