Summary
"Meet Ginny Moon. She's mostly your average teenager--she plays flute in the school band, has weekly basketball practice and reads Robert Frost poems for English class. But Ginny is autistic. And so what's important to her might seem a bit...different: starting every day with exactly nine grapes for breakfast, singing along to Michael Jackson, taking care of her baby doll...and crafting a secret plan of escape. Ginny has been in foster care for years and for the first time in her life she has found her "forever home." After being traumatically taken from her abusive mother and moved around to different homes, she is finally in a place where she'll be safe and protected, with a family who will love and nurture her. This is exactly the kind of home that all foster kids are hoping for. But Ginny has other plans. She'll steal and lie and reach across her past to exploit the good intentions of those who love her--anything it takes to get back what's missing in her life. She'll even try to get herself kidnapped." -- Jacket

Summary
What an amazing debut novel! Ludwig effectively captures the voice, thought process, and behaviors of a young autistic girl who has escaped a harrowing living situation and has finally settled into a new ”forever” home. Unfortunately, she becomes obsessed with returning to her old home to find her “baby doll,” jeopardizing both her own and her new family's safety. Ginny truly is an original, and readers will be captivated by her story. -- Vicki Nesting for LibraryReads
