Twelve-year-old Maggie has boxes of things that would look like junk to anyone else. She keeps them under her bed and in her closet. They help her remember the people and places she loves—like Nana, who stopped recognizing Maggie shortly before she died. Like her adorable foster sister, Izzie, who will have to leave for her forever home in just a few days.  As Maggie’s life gets more overwhelming, so does her secret collection. This sympathetic, sharply emotional novel explores anxiety, friendship, and the power of unconditional love. Ages 10-14.
