Publisher Description

Rachel Berman wants everything to be perfect. An overprotective single mother of two, she is acutely aware of the statistical dangers lurking around every corner—which makes her snap decision to aid a stranded motorist wholly uncharacteristic. Len Bean is stuck on the shoulder with Olivia, his relentlessly curious, learning disabled ten-year-old daughter. To the chagrin of Rachel's children, who are about to be linked to the most-mocked girl in school, Rachel and Len begin dating. And when Len receives terrible news, little Olivia needs a hero more than ever.

But the world refuses to be predictable. When personal crisis profoundly alters Rachel's relationship with a wild, very special little girl, this perfectionist mother finds herself drawn into a mystery from her past and toward a new appreciation for her own children's imperfect lives.

Sweet Story

I loved this easy to read sweet story-the story was written well enough that you felt connected to the characters-

Not worth the time

Uninteresting read. While I was hoping for a tear jerker for joys and sadnesses regarding a child with disabilities, there was too much going on with the other kids, especially the focus on the gay teen's struggles. Really took away from the story.

What a beautiful story!

I adore this book. It is different than what I normally read and i have to admit by about the tenth chapter i was hooked. It only took me 3 days to read it. That's coming from a college student who is also student teaching. I could not wait to get back to the book! I felt like it had the perfect amount of surprises and drama. The author also made the book flow very well. I plan on keeping it for when I want to read it in the future. I highly recommend this book.
