Product Description

Katie Barnes wanted was to be a normal 13-year-old with a normal home and a normal family. Instead, her family is homeless and half a continent away from family and friends. She's living her life in a soggy tent, from which her most precious possession was stolen. And to make mattes worse, she's the laughingstock of the other girls. It's entirely unfair, and the charity of self-serving churchy old folks is only making life worse. What kind of God do her parents believe in? Well, Katie's about to find out, and it won't be pretty. Recommended for ages 8 to 12, 154 pages.

Publisher's Description

A realistic portrayal of a young woman and her family that will appeal to the altruism inherent in tweens. All Katie Barnes wants is to be a normal thirteen-year-old with a normal home again. She and her family had moved from Kansas to Washington state hoping to find a better life. Instead, they are completely homeless and four states away from family and friends. Katie chafes under the stress of being forced to accept charity, struggles to fit in with the other kids, and ultimately blames God, who has apparently abandoned her to this miserable life. With the current economic situation, there are a lot of families in the Barnes's shoes Confronts individual character issues with God and invites kids to reach out to those less fortunate without putting them down Remarkably in-touch with the world of early teens
