"When the judge decided my sisters should live with Dwight, I knew it was going to change my life." After the divorce, Addie's half-sisters moved upstate with their natural father, Dwight, and Addie moved to a trailer home-parked off a busy city intersection- with her increasingly unstable mother. But Addie still remembers-and longs for-a "normal" family life. "Normal is being able to count on certain things. Good things. And it's having everyone together-just because they belong that way." Winner of the 2009 Schneider Family Book Award.
