(From the publisher):
There were three of them: stubborn, sensible Mary Jack, rebellious Adam, and the tiny, fragile girl who refused to speak, even to say her own name. And well-meaning Matt Percy and his nervous wife, Jill, were meant to be "parents" to the three. But like many foster families, this one didn't seem to be working out very well. Adam was defiant and determined to make trouble. Mary Jack tried to smooth things over, but deep down she wished Adam would just go away. Mary Jack had been in too many different foster homes already; she'd rather stay with the Percys than chance another one. And the tiny girl—the social workers had given her the name Jane Smith when they found her, silent and battered, on the freeway—drew more and more into herself.
These three—and an unexpected companion—band together to forge a solution to their very different problems and to join, as Mary Jack says, in an "absolutely perfect family."
