Florence Osmundabout this book: Twelve-year-old Ben panics when his parents don't come home from work one day while his panicky six-year-old sister Lucy clings to him for support. Having been raised in a household where the police and Child Protective Services are considered the enemy, the children don't want to end up in foster homes and will do anything to avoid being separated. But their journey to stay clear of the authorities is fraught with obstacles and people who may not have their best interests at heart.
The character-building decisions Ben makes for himself and his sister—both good and bad— eventually determine their fate. And after nineteen hundred days of trying to get his own life on track while protecting those who need protecting, the lessons Ben learns along the way serve to prepare him for what lies ahead.
From the Author: It typically takes me five months to draft a first manuscript of a book. This one (for reasons unknown to me) took five weeks. I could get the thoughts out of my head and on paper fast enough. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it.
