Her name is Sadie, but she might as well be called Fostergirl. That's how everyone thinks of her. Sadie doesn't care. In fact, she'd be happier if they didn't think of her at all. Her goal is to go unnoticed and disappear until she reaches the age of sixteen and can apply for legal emancipation. Now she finds herself in another new high school, another new group home--number thirteen, but who's counting? This time there's a girl at her school named Rhiannon, who won't let her be invisible and insists on being her friend, and a guidance counselor, who won't give up trying to find out why Sadie has such a hard time in English class. Their belief in her might be able to restore Sadie's belief in others, and maybe even herself. But a person from her past and a shocking accident threaten to turn Sadie back to the safety of her self-imposed isolation.

Sadie, after 12 different foster homes, is sent to a group home. She thinks of herself as fostergirl or grouphomegirl. She tries to stay detached from everyone around her, but a persistent classmate keeps insisting that they be friends. Sadie just wants to be legally emancipated so she can live on her own. She doesn’t know how to react when classmate Rhiannon is nice to her, or when the guidance counselor wants to help her. The book gives a realistic description of the hurt and destructive behavior that are the results of Sadie’s unstable childhood.
