About the Book
Phyllis and Tonya are two sisters forced to live in a
"Safe Home" to get away from their physically and

and pretend not to care.
When they are placed in the home of a single mom
and her teenaged daughter the entire family goes
through a transformation. The mother learns to
manage her time between work and the girls. The
teenager learns being a big sister can be tough. Phyllis
and Tonya go through many trials and troubling
situations with the teenaged daughter before they all
learn there is plenty of mom's love for all of them.
