Part of Orca Publishers' popular Orca Soundings series, De nadie mas is the Spanish translation of Saving Grace. As is typical of the Orca Soundings series, the book is written at a level accessible to most middle school students and is an excellent resource for ELL and struggling readers. Evie is a teen mom who was forced to give up her child for adoption. She kidnaps five-month-old Grace, who she calls Brianna, from her adoptive family and convinces the baby's father to drive them to Montreal. The story is full of poor choices, but they are realistic choices when viewed through a teenager's lens: the action of taking what Evie believes is hers, the thought that reading a parenting book and getting an infant car seat and baby formula means she is prepared to take care of the child, the belief that two teen parents could raise a child on their own in a big city with little skills and little resources. There are a couple words which might cause problems in some schools or communities but in my mind, they are words which most teens probably hear most every day of their lives.

this book is a really heart warming story she decides to care for her child after forced to give her baby up for adoption although kidnapping her baby wasn't the greatest thing to do but what would you do in that situation? her baby did get sick and she took her baby in knowing she would probably be caught but she cared enough to do so not everyone does something like that being so young its a story that is in real life today
