Adopted by Caucasian parents, biracial teen Lizzie feels like she never belonged. After the death of her father, Lizzie starts acting out — dating, staying away from home for days and giving up her plans to continue her education. When Lizzie discovers she is pregnant, she is faced with the difficult choice of having a child or getting an abortion. This leads Lizzie to want to find her own birth mother. After running away from home, Lizzie ends up in Kingston, where she tracks down an older woman named Ruth who sheds light on the circumstances surrounding Lizzie's birth.

- Kathryn Ferrante School Library Journal

"Tackles difficult issues head on, matter of factly and with sensitivity."

- Cate Carlyle CM: Canadian Review of Materials

"A fast-moving plot, written at a second grade reading level, will keep hi-lo readers engaged."

"With gritty themes like teen pregnancy, abuse, and discrimination, this title deals with important issues head-on."

- School Library Journal
