"When I first got to high school I thought it was daunting, without even a thought to the world surrounding me. I had no idea that the building that I was about to enter would be a condensed world of the future in front of me. Being the naïve person I was back then, I still thought I could have a better life after I got handed that diploma. It was even more naïve of me to actually believe that I would get a diploma. Now look where I am. No family, no home, no money, no job, no possibility of a diploma, and no luck. Yep, my future is definitely bright."  - Sarah Baker
      
      Subtract an abusive grandmother. Add foster parents. Divide sanity. Multiply nine brothers. This equals the past few months of Sarah Baker's life.  

      For the past nine years, Sarah Baker has appeared to have it all together. She has even convinced herself of that fact. But once certain events come around, she soon realizes that everything she thought she knew either doesn't matter, or is a lie. She can't face the people who won't understand what she's going through, and the ones who can aren't able to anymore. So, in hope of finding some light in a world of shadows, she goes in search of her old self, in a city she once knew like the back of her hand. She may not have it all together. Maybe she never did. But all she can do is count her shadows, because she has nothing left to live for.
      
      Subtract a best friend. Add four old friends. Divide a family of eleven. Multiply an infinite amount of problems. This equals Sarah Baker's life for the rest of this story.

I'm  so happy there is more to her story but I'm so sad because she's been through so much
