We first meet Katie when she is being transported to a foster home by a girls' home director. Katie has just gotten settled into the group home and then she found out she was being shipped off to a foster home in In Between, Texas to live with James and Millie Scott. Katie's mother is in prison and her father is not involved, so Katie has learned to fend for herself, yet she finds herself adjusting to her "pretend" family and learning what unconditional love is, from both her foster parents and God when she finds herself getting into some trouble.
Jones' book is filled with characters that are humorous, heart-wrenching and so real. Written from Katie's perspective, this book is sure to be a winner with teenage girls. Katie may be experiencing a different life than many, but yet she still struggles with some of the same issues on top of having to live in a foster home and dealing with not being with her biological parents. This is a great start to the series and is highly recommended!
