From the Author:

                My friend Jill and I were talking one day. She has two kids, Riley and Mia, about the age of Riley and Mia in the book (yes, I borrowed their names).  This was during The Hunger Games book launch and Jill said her girls were too young to read the book, though they really wanted to. Then she asked, "Why doesn't someone right a strong female character for my girls' age?"  I took that as a personal challenge and wrote Bending Willow.
                The hardest part was figuring out how to let the girls have an adventure in the protectionist society we live in. Really, think about driving down the road and seeing two young girls walking down the freeway or something. Social Services would be on it in a heartbeat. So, it took some thinking to figure out how to let the girls have an adventure.
                It was an awesome challenge and I think I did a good job writing both a strong female character in Riley and in Mia too, and -- it's a great adventure.

From the Back Cover:

Riley knew Grandma was dead because she was smiling, Grandma never smiled when she was alive...
When Riley discovers her grandmother dead one morning, she knows her world is about to collapse. She's been here before. After her mom and stepdad died in a car accident, she and her little sister Mia had been sent to live in a shelter until Grandma finally took them in. They were not going back to that shelter. Not this time.
Determined to find the father she knows only by an address on an envelope marked "Return to Sender," Riley and Mia take off on an adventurous journey with so many twists and turns Riley begins to doubt they'll ever find a real home. She ignores the question that keeps popping into her mind-if they do somehow find her father, will he even want them? Or will he send them back to the shelter?
