Forever, or A Long, Long TimeBook - 2017
A Kirkus Reviews Best Books of 2017 Selection!
From rising new talent Caela Carter, author of My Life with the Liars, comes an achingly beautiful and endearing story about two foster children who want desperately to believe that they've found their forever home.

So along with their new mother, Flora and Julian begin a journey to go back and discover their past--for only then can they really begin to build their future.
