SHIFTY on School Library Journal

Take a look at School Library Journal.
SHIFTY is in good company there today in an article recommending books about youth in foster care.

The SLJ article states,
"According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, there are more than 500,000 children in foster care in the United States. Sadly, the trend is showing more children entering the system than exiting. There are many wonderful foster families helping young adults prepare for the world, but unfortunately there are others where abuse and neglect are the norm. These titles are sure to prompt discussion among readers about the foster care system in our country."

Take a look!
