Carley Conners is a 12 year old girl who grew up in Las Vegas, She grew up in an old house with an abusive stepfather who is very much hated by Carley. One day, Carley's mother had to go to the hospital because of her leg. Carley was put into a foster home with the Murphy's. Mrs.Murphy is a mother who tries to be absolutely perfect, she is very organized and does everything for her kids, the complete opposite of what Carley is used to. I've noticed that Carley gets angry at Mrs.Murphy for no good reasons and has a lot of mood swings. Mrs.Murphy has 3 kids and a husband, her three kids are Michael Eric, Adam and Daniel, all of them are boys and are all about 4 or 5 years apart. Her husbands name is Jack, he is the captain of the Fire Department. Carley is so used to her stepfather being cruel and getting angry that she thinks that Jack will do the same but I don't think that he will, I think that Jack and Michael Eric are going to be her best friends at the house. I have really been enjoying this book and I hope it is very good.
