Firefly lived in the park across from her mother’s home. It was safer there. But after the bad night happens, and her baseball-bat-wielding mother is taken away, social services sends Firefly to live with her Aunt Gayle. She hardly knows Gayle, but discovers that she owns a costume shop.
Yes, Firefly might be suffering from PTSD, but she can get used to taking baths, sleeping on a bed again, and wearing as many costumes as she can to school.
But where is “home”? What is “family”? Who is Firefly, for that matter … and which costume is the real one?Subject(s): Family | General (see also headings under Social Themes) | Homelessness & Poverty | Juvenile fiction | Self-esteem & Self-reliance | Social ThemesOriginal Publisher: Toronto, DCBLanguage(s): EnglishISBN: 9781770865990, 1770865985Collection(s)/Series: Governor General's Literary Awards 2021
