You won’t meet a spunkier or sweeter character than Sugar Mae Cole. Although her ne’er-do-well gambling father drifts in and out of their lives, she and her southern belle mother, Reba, live a happy life with her grandfather. After he dies, Sugar and her mother lose their house in Missouri and decide to follow a friend to Chicago for a fresh start. However, the only they have is bad. When a crisis develops, Sugar is tested to the very heart of her being. With the help of her rescue dog, Shush, and some quirky new friends, Sugar learns that home is where you make it and life is what you make it. A tender, heart-breaking yet often humorous story of being homeless and searching for the place you belong. Award-winning Bauer has written another great one!
