Paper Things
by Jennifer Richard Jacobson

Fifth-grader Arianna Hazard and her 19-year-old brother Gage live with Janna, a guardian after their mother died four years ago. When Gage moves out with 11-year-old Ari they end up homeless, spending months staying with friends or sneaking into a juvenile shelter some nights. Ari's friendships are strained, and her grades slip while struggling to hide her situation from classmates. Grades 4-8. You may also enjoy Where I'd Like to Be by Frances O'Roark Dowell
