I just finished a book called Wreath by Judy Christy. I really enjoyed it, and thought it was a sweet story. I didn't realize until after I'd started it that it was a YA book. I think it was the author's first YA. Anyways, it was about a girl who's mom dies, and she is left all alone. She wants to get through her last year of high school on her own, so she hides, and avoids being put in foster care. It was a fast, easy read.
