Review: Whitney is a foster child that has been shuffled through 11 homes throughout her life. Now she's moving to the 12th foster home in a place like no where she's ever lived before. She is a city girl, and her new home is in the middle of a forest in a community built on the logging industry. Circumstances of why her new foster parents have agreed to take her in seem mysterious until she starts finding out about her new community. Whitney's humorous tone makes this story fun to read while showing the many problems faced between those whose lives depend on trees and those who live to protect the wildlife that depends on the trees.
