Benjamin Ludwig's unforgettable debut novel introduces the compelling and lovable Ginny Moon who discovers a new meaning of family on her heart-warming quest for a safe home.
Ginny Moon, a child with autism, is in her fourth Forever home. Even if people around her don’t usually get her, they all want her to feel she belongs. What they don’t know is that even if it seems she found a loving home, Ginny has no intention of belonging – she is determined to go back to her abusive mother’s apartment, obsessed to find something that she insists she left behind. But no one listens. No one understands. So Ginny decides to make it happen on her own terms...
Secretly, she was able to trace her biological mother on Facebook and contacts her, giving out her new address which put the entire Moon family in danger. Tension escalates, eventually forcing the Moons to begin the process of placing Ginny back St. Genevieve’s Home for Girls. Will Ginny still be able to find what she’s desperately looking for?
