Britta isn't going to give up her little sister easily
Eleven-year-old Britta's family took in little Dori—a member of the Ute tribe—as a baby. Now four years later, Dori's birth mother, Irene, is ready to take Dori back. Blunt and feisty, Britta is filled with anger. How can Irene claim Dori when she's been gone all this time? Britta will stop at nothing to keep her sister, even if it means running away. Hard as it is, though, she begins to see beyond her own biases, beyond the green of her little farming community, and beyond her own ideas of what makes a family.
In this semi-autobiographical coming-of-age story, author Sharlee Glenn presents the struggles around foster children and adoption and explores the process of overcoming prejudices.
