And he misses his little sister, Lili, who was put into a different foster home because "not a lot of people want boys-not foster boys that ain''t babies." But Lonnie hasn''t given up. His foster mother, Miss Edna, is growing on him. She''s already raised two sons and she seems to know what makes them tick. And his teacher, Ms. Marcus, is showing him ways to put his jumbled feelings on paper.
