Mel and her mother, Cecily, know what its like to live rough, whether its on the streets or in the apartment of an abusive man.When Cecily announces that theyve had enough and that they are going to go home to her mothers, Mel dreams of security, a comfortable bed, and a grandmothers love seem to be about to come true. But some mistakes cannot be easily forgiven or erased. Her grandmother is not what Mel expects, and though the local library offers sanctuary, a real home seems beyond her grasp. Mels determination to rise above what fate has dealt is about to change that.
Cyndi Sand-Evelands work with homeless youth gives her characters an authenticity no reader will forget. Ultimately, a story of hope and acceptance, A Tinfoil Sky is a powerful, cant-putit- down novel.
