Ruby, where is your mother?

Ruby knows that the game is up. For the past few months, she’s been on her own in the yellow house, managing somehow, knowing that her mother will probably never return.

That’s how she comes to live with Cora, the sister she hasn’t seen in ten years, and Cora’s husband Jamie, whose down-to-earth demeanor makes it hard for Ruby to believe he founded the most popular networking Web site around. A luxurious house, fancy private school, a new wardrobe, the promise of college and a future; it’s a dream come true. So why is Ruby such a reluctant Cinderella, wary and defensive? And why is Nate, the genial boy next door with some secrets of his own, unable to accept the help that Ruby is just learning to give?

We didn’t get snow but Amazon just couldn’t be a good little retailer and send all of my books in 1-2 shipments. I’m not mad because I’m glad they were able to get these out the door. I told you I went on a book-buying binge and if my fingers had not cramped up when they did, I might have went overboard. Now, I definitely have to get that bookcase I was looking at in the furniture store. No more procrastinating on that front because the piles on my floor in front of the shelf I currently have are getting out of hand and I have to keep my cat out of that room.
