It's Baby's last chance with foster parents before she's shipped off to a juvenile detention center.
Baby may believe that meeting Bobby is the best thing that ever happened to her. But it happens when Baby's finally at a wonderful place in her life, and Bobby starts to take her away from it all.
Under Bobby's influence, Baby will do just about anything, even take her foster parents, Mary and Fred's, most prized possession -- a sled dog. Her life is spiraling out of control, and drug dealings and addictions eventually lead Bobby straight behind bars.
Baby is once again abandoned, this time with nothing but a pack of cigarettes to her name.
What path is Baby going to take? Her new life of safety, or a life of running and sleeping on the streets, using drugs?
BABY tells a great story of real life adventure. I recommend it to everyone, especially those who are interested in stories dealing with important "What if?" issues.
