American children spend an average of just over 3 years in foster care after they become eligible for adoption.More than 1\3 of Americans have considered adopting, but no more than 2% actually adopted. Did you know that children under 1 year waiting for adoption is 4%? There are more orphans in the world than there are people the UK and France combined. So do you think people should adopt?
If I was the main character, was in foster care,and got sent to a family, I wouldn't run away like Hollis did. I would just be thankful that I have a new family. Also I would try to fit in and get along with my new family. What would you do?

Setting
The setting took place in Longs Island, New York. It is present during this time.The beautiful season of winter is beginning and soon it will be Christamas.
Theme
I think the theme of this book is making a difference. This story is all about making changes. Hollis is always going to different homes and has diffeent feelings each time.
Conflict
Book Recommendation
Well-written Description
'' the old man drawing with a flesh-peach pencil.''
the color of peach and a pencil is being compared
''how about w for wish,for want , or for wouldn't it be lovely''
this sentence is using alliteration because of the mutiple of W's
''Hollis is a mountain of trouble''
this is showing a metaphor by comparing and not using like or as
The conflict of this book is mainly about Hollis not finding a home that she likes.She tries to deal with this problem by getting along with the family. Also,if she does not like the family she runs away.
ecstatic
-
happy mood of joy
Hollis was ecstatic when she met Josie
I recommend you to read this book if you like to read about realistic-fiction.I rate this book 5 stars.I liked the story because of its mystery.
Josie felt a pinprick in her eye when the room filled with light.
