Katie Parker knows life isn’t fair. After all, when your mom’s in jail and your dad’s a no-show, you figure things just aren’t going your way. But hey, she can deal.

Then she finds out she’s being sent to live with a foster family—in In Between, Texas.What kind of town has a name like In Between? And what kind of family wants a kid like her?

One thing’s for certain: None of this will be good. Sure enough—thanks to some new “friends” and her non-Mom’s crazed mother, Mad Maxine—life sails right past bad to stinking.

Then again, she’s just a temporary kid, they’re just temporary parents, and she definitely doesn’t have any ideas about making any of this permanent.

God, on the other hand, may have other plans altogether.
