Peas and Carrots

(2016)
A novel by

 
A rich and memorable story from a Coretta Scott King honor award-winning author about a teenage foster girl looking for a place to call home. Dess knows that nothing good lasts. Disappointment is never far away, and that s a truth that Dess has learned to live with. Dess s mother s most recent arrest is just the latest in a long line of disappointments, but this one lands her with her baby brother s foster family. Dess doesn t exactly fit in with the Carters. They re so happy, so comfortable, so normal, and Hope, their teenage daughter, is so hopelessly naive. Dess and Hope couldn t be more unlike each other, but Austin loves them both like sisters. Over time their differences, insurmountable at first, fall away to reveal two girls who want the same thing: to belong. Tanita S. Davis, a Coretta Scott King Honor winner, weaves a tale of two modern teenagers defying stereotypes and deciding for themselves what it means to be a family."
