My book talk: Returned to her family 12 years after being kidnapped by her mom, Callie has to learn how to love them and herself, even after what happened to her on the road.

Never started high school, so she won’t attend her mom and dad’s alma mater. Never stayed anywhere long enough to have a boyfriend, but…

Just as Callie’s getting comfortable with Dad’s family and cute Alex, Mom blows into Tarpon Springs – will her eccentric behavior always haunt the teen?  (One of 6,000 books recommended on www.abookandahug.com)
