Fifteen-year-old Shifty knows all about moving around and next to nothing about where he came from. When he's assigned to a new foster home and family, he tries hard to keep cool and stay out of trouble. But it seems like the more he tries to do the right thing, the more trouble he finds. As Shifty navigates a series of messy summer adventures, he struggles to find a balance between the street-wise spirit that has helped him survive and his longing for a place to call home. -Goodreads

Also, I know this isn't book-related, but my mom bought me the most adorable pillow from this shop called The Lavendar Tree on Etsy. The owner sells the most sweet pillows, scarves, and odds and ends she's made from recycled wool. She also has a blog, here. Go check her out!
