The Road to Paris by Nikki Grimes


Author: Nikki Grimes

“Home is a painful word to spell. Paris has been sent from one mean foster family to another, never feeling welcome, never fitting in. Having her brother by her side made it tolerable, but now the system has ripped them apart. When Paris moves in with the Lincolns, she expects the worst. This family is different, though. With daily acts of love and inclusion, the Lincolns slowly earn her trust and worm their way into her heart. She misses her brother, of course. And as a biracial girl in a predominantly white town, there are constant reminders of her outsider status. Still, maybe, just maybe, Paris has finally found a place she can call home. But the minute this possibility seems within reach, Paris is asked to make a difficult decision about where she truly belongs.” © 2006 Paperback 153 pages
