Some brief overview of this book

Seventeen-year-old Shavonne has been in juvenile detention since the seventh grade. Mr. Delpopolo is the first counselor to treat her as an equal, and he helps her get to the bottom of her self-destructive behavior, her guilt about past actions, and her fears about leaving the Center when she turns eighteen. Shavonne tells him the truth about her crack-addicted mother, the child she had (and gave up to foster care) at fifteen, and the secret shame she feels about what she did to her younger brother after her mother abandoned them. Meanwhile, Shavonnes mentally unstable roommate Cinda makes a rash move, and Shavonnes quick thinking saves her life—and gives her the opportunity to get out of the Center if she behaves well. But Shavonnes faith is tested when her new roommate, mentally retarded and pregnant Mary, is targeted by a guard as a means to get revenge on Shavonne. As freedom begins to look more and more likely, Shavonne begins to believe that maybe she, like the goslings recently hatched on the Centers property, could have a future somewhere else—and she begins to feel something like hope.

This is a brutally honest but hopeful story of finding yourself and moving beyond your past.
