Happy Monday! The purpose of memorable Monday is to showcase a book that you’ve read in the past and share how/why it has stuck with you.
This week I’m featuring:
Like Dandelion Dust takes a look into the world of foster care. It’s an incredibly emotional read. It was also made into a movie (but SURPRISE the movie isn’t as good as the book). This is one that has really stuck with me, particularly due to my heart for foster care and kids who are and/or have been stuck in the system. I highly encourage you take the time to read it if you haven’t already!
About the Book:
LIKE DANDELION DUST is a powerful novel about two parents, their love for their adopted son, Joey, and the suprising lengths they will go to keep their family together when a judge rules that Joey must be returned to his biological father. In the days that follow, Jack Campbell has a desperate and dangerous thought. What if they can devise a way out? Then they could take Joey and disappear…like dandelion dust.
