Teenager Aaron Saturn is just emerging from his grief following the death of his younger brother Isaac, when his parents’ decision to adopt a baby from China sends him into a tailspin. Aaron longs to escape his pain, and thinks he’s found a way when he meets Kim, a girl living on the streets of Manhattan’s East Village. With the help of his funny, loyal, best friend Sam and his new girlfriend Emma — who has troubles of her own — Aaron learns that running away is not the answer. In order to heal, he must let love back into his heart. This book is for ages 12 and up, and includes themes of family, friendship, grieving, adoption and race.
