Have you ever tried to remember the title of a book you read earlier in your life but can’t seem to think of it?
There is this one book that I read growing up that I remember reading at least a couple of times but I cannot for the life of me remember the title or name of the author. I remember a lot of random details from the book so I’ve tried Googling it but come up with nothing. I can somewhat visualize the cover and would know it if I saw it. I’m pretty sure it was a book from the mid-1980s and the edges of the pages were yellow (on purpose not from age) It was about a girl who goes into the foster care system and ends up with a family who has adopted a bunch of kids who all have disabilities ranging from blindness to being in a wheelchair. She is “normal” so at first it feels weird to be around them but as the story goes on, she comes to think of them as her best friends and family. One of their friends from school who is also disabled (although I can’t remember what his disability was) was named David. She and David were working on painting sets together for the school play. They kind of fall for each other. At one point some of the people at their school started making fun of her for hanging out with the disabled kids and she fired back at them and stuck up for her friends. In the end, the parents decide to adopt her too. I can’t remember any of the other character’s names, just David.
Those are the main details I remember about the story. I would really love to read it again but I can’t seem to find it anywhere! It has been driving me crazy for years! Anybody happen to have heard about this book?
Do you have a book like this that has been eluding you for years?
