Full description for Flyaway
Stevie Calhoun knows how to take care of herself. It's not like her mom hasn't disappeared before. So why is Aunt Mindy making such a big deal of it now? It's not like Mom's "really" doing meth. Stevie makes sure of that. "Whatever." She'll go home with Aunt Mindy if it will keep her from calling Child Protective Services--but it doesn't mean she'll stay. Mom will come back. Mom always comes back. And Stevie will be there when she does. But when Stevie meets Alan--frustrating and fascinating and so-different-from-everyone-she-knows Alan--and she starts helping out at the bird rehab center, things begin to look different. Even the tutoring and the ridiculous outfits Aunt Mindy's forcing her into might not be so bad. Not that Stevie would say it out loud. She can't. Because how can anything be good if it doesn't include Mom?
