More about GINNY MOON:
Meet Ginny Moon. 

She’s mostly your average teenager --- she plays flute in the school band, has weekly basketball practice, and reads Robert Frost poems for English class. But Ginny is autistic. So what’s important to her might seem a bit…different: starting every day with exactly nine grapes for breakfast, Michael Jackson, taking care of her baby doll…and crafting a secret plan of escape.

Ginny has been in foster care for years, and for the first time in her life she has found her “forever home.” After being traumatically taken from her abusive birth mother and moved around to different homes, she is finally in a place where she’ll be safe and protected, with a family who will love and nurture her.

This is exactly what all foster kids are hoping for. But Ginny has other plans. She’ll steal and lie and exploit the good intentions of those who love her --- anything it takes to get back what’s missing in her life. She’ll even try to get herself kidnapped.
