A story worth telling

This book is very moving. The main character is a young girl whose brother dies and whose mother gives her up for adoption. Her foster mother is a hard woman and the foster father is a wonderful, caring person who helps her grow as a person. Death is the narrator and, at times, the book can be very sad but it is a story worth telling.
