Carolina is eleven, and lives in a converted school bus with her younger sister, Trinity, and her single mother, Melanie.  Her mother loves the mobility of their situation, which allows them to follow Trinity’s father, Red, from town to town.  Parked in a field near the coastline of California, Carolina finds a baby crow on the ground beneath its nest, and decides to care for the bird until it is able to fend for itself.  She also befriends Stefan Crouch, a lonely boy confined to a wheelchair, whose father owns the land where Melanie has parked their home.  As Carolina grows close to Stefan and his family, she contemplates the possibility of a future filled with comforts and a constancy that her current situation lacks, and she is forced to define for herself the meanings of home, family, and belonging.  Carolina Crow Girl is a coming-of-age story that explores the themes of diversity and friendship in a setting that will appeal to young adults and reluctant readers.
