Children’s librarian Valerie Cruz has worked hard to make a comfortable life for herself since aging out of the foster care system. She loves her job but avoids intimate connections―life has taught her that she can only count on herself. When she gets the opportunity to become a foster parent, Val decides to take the leap. If she can help kids, she’ll do it, even if it means reentering the system.
Foster care case worker Paige Wellington is passionate about her work, and she’s been a foster parent herself.

But when they clash over what is in the best interest of the children in Valerie’s care, the children may be the only ones who can convince them that it’s worth taking chances for love.
