Pretty Baby/Mary Kubica/380 pgs.
It all begins when Heidi Wood sees a teenage girl, with a baby, standing on the platform of the "L" train in Chicago. Is the girl homeless? Does she need help? These questions plague Heidi until she makes contact with the girl, Willow, and baby Ruby. Heidi brings Willow and Ruby home to her condo where her husband, Chris, and young teen daughter, Zoe, are anything but thrilled. After all, what do they really know about this young girl, Willow? The book develops in chapters told from Heidi, Willow, and Chris's perspectives. It's an intriguing book--some parts are somewhat predictable, but on the whole, it's a hard book to put down. Highly recommended!
