Returnable Girl


Lowell, Pamela. 2006. Returnable Girl.

Ronnie Hartman is a troubled thirteen year old. Abandoned by her mother, rejected by her aunt and uncle, and passed around from foster home to foster home, she is unhappy, angry, bitter, and dishonest. Feeling that even being on her ‘best behavior’ isn’t good enough to get her a real home and family, she’s determined to be wild, reckless, and free. Obeying no one, living only for herself. She thinks love is the most risky thing you can do. Stealing and lying are nothing...but loving, trusting, being vulnerable. It’s foreign territory for her. Can her new foster parent break through to her before she makes a mistake she’ll end up regretting forever? Is there a way to reach her before she reaches rock bottom? RETURNABLE GIRL is a year in the life of an unforgettable narrator.
