What I Carry Cover Image

Join us for cozy (virtual) evenings with Lori Robinson, knitting and discussing whatever book assigned. There will be tea, the clacking of needles, and silence when troublesome parts of patterns interrupt conversation. On May 6th we are reading What I Carry by Jennifer Longo. All levels of knitters are welcome!

"A deeply touching story about survival, hope, and love." --Kathleen Glasgow, New York Times bestselling author of Girl in Pieces

For readers of Robin Benway's Far from the Tree, a powerful and heartwarming look at a teen girl about to age out of the foster care system.


Growing up in foster care, Muir has lived in many houses. And if she's learned one thing, it is to Pack. Light. Carry only what fits in a suitcase.

Toothbrush? Yes. Socks? Yes. Emotional attachment to friends? foster families? a boyfriend? Nope! There's no room for any additional baggage.

Muir has just one year left before she ages out of the system. One year before she's free. One year to avoid anything--or anyone--that could get in her way.

Then she meets Francine. And Kira. And Sean.

And everything changes.
