Title: Blackberry Summer
Genre: Middle Grade
Phoenix was sure she was about to die. It wasn’t fair, considering all she’d done for the chance to finally discover the truth about where she came from. The months of planning, stealing money from the emergency funds, forging her mom’s signature for the airline and bus tickets, would all be wasted on some back road in the Tennessee hills. They’d never find her body until predators made it impossible to identify. She thought about her best friend’s warning, just before she boarded the plane that morning. I hope this doesn’t come back to bite us in the butt, Phoenix.
