He was a foster kid for most of his life, until his mom adopted him two years ago. That's the closest thing he's ever had to a family, to permanence. Then he finds a scruffy little dog, Flip, and feels a little bit closer to normalcy. And when he meets the librarian's daughter, Halley, on one of his many trips to the library, he makes a friend for maybe the first time in his life.
But Ben has to learn that even the good things can't stay around forever...but they're what make life good.
A truly touching story of family and friendship that just might help you see the magic in your own life.
