Description - Shifty by Lynn E. Hazen
I like how Martha is all trusting of me. Not too many people trust me like that. No one besides Martha, in fact. I got a whole file full of people saying how I'm shifty and not to be trusted. But Martha, she trusts the good in people, even when the bad part is showing up more than anything else.When fifteen-year-old Shifty moves into a new foster home, with a mother, sister and baby brother, he struggles to find a balance between the independent spirit that has helped him survive and his longing for a place to call home.Both funny and tender, Shifty's misadventures touch on themes of resilience, home, and lost and found family.
