Roam by C.H. Armstrong
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
It's never easy being the "new girl" in town, now add to the mix that it's your Senior year, oh, and the fact that your family is living in a van in the Walmart parking lot. When Abby Lunde shows up on her first day of school all she wants is to be invisible to everyone around her, but when Zach, the big-man-on-campus, takes an interest in her, hiding in the shadows becomes nearly impossible. Can Abbey trust these new friends? How can she forgive her mom for putting their family in this situation? How much longer can Abby hide the truth from the people who are closest to her?
Roam is more than a coming of age story. Abby's voice paints a vivid picture of what it's like for many teens who don't know where they'll sleep each night, yet keep trying to fight through each day as if life were normal.
