Synopsis

Shifty by Lynn E. Hazen

When fifteen-year-old Soli is assigned to a new foster home, complete with mum, sister and baby brother, he struggles to find a balance between the independent spirit that has helped him survive and his longing for a place to call home.

Reviews

This novel will appeal to many young readers but will have special meaning for those who know what it is to be unwanted and are searching for a place to call home. || A light hearted fast-paced book. It is full of warmth and humour and deserves its selection as a Smithsonian Notable Book. || This witty, rollicking American import leaves readers which much to think about.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
