              In this powerful collection of short stories, children around the world turn eleven and take a step into their futures. Each one is changed in ways both big and small. Annoyed at having to walk his sister's dog on his birthday, Connor heads into an undeveloped subdivision, where ...he comes across chilling evidence of a stranger's unhappiness. A girl sneaks away from her class camping trip to a local conservation area and experiences, for the first time, the terror and joy of fending for herself for the first time. Dom's brother gives him a special crystal to boost his confidence, and the gift conjures up a child laborer from the impoverished area of Madagascar where the stones were mined. Mysterious voices at the local county fair prompt Aislynn to think twice after her older sister dumps her for her high-school buddies. While volunteering at his local soup kitchen, Len discovers that there are bigger shames than having the class bully seeing you in a hairnet. And on an historic bridge in Budapest, Lazlo's dream of the perfect father-son birthday outing becomes a nightmare when his father introduces him to his Neo-Nazi friends. A companion to the critically acclaimed Sit. Key Text Features short stories table of contents dialogue

              Jake and his older sister, Shoshona, have been under foster care since their single mother was jailed three years before. Jake has created an alter ego named Jakeman to help him cope, and he has secretly written a series of letters to the Governor, pleading for their mom's releas...e. Along with an assortment of nervous, angry, and damaged kids, Jake and Shoshona regularly take the long bus trip through New York state to visit their mother in jail. But this time, the journey will be like no other. The social workers contract food poisoning on the way back to the city and are taken to a hospital, leaving the exasperated driver and his hidden bottle of booze in charge. In no time the driver is drunk and lost, and he staggers off the bus, leaving the children in the middle of nowhere. Sick to death of a system that has deserted them at every turn, Shoshana takes the wheel. And Jake and the others hatch a plan to find the Governor and force him to listen to them once and for all.
