When not reading or writing, she enjoys dreaming up travel itineraries and drinking entirely too much tea. She is a regular co-host on the All the Books podcast who especially loves mysteries, gothic lit, mythology/folklore, and all things witchy. Vanessa can be found on Instagram at @BuenosDiazSD or taking pictures of pretty trees in Portland, OR, where she now resides.

This Riot Recommendation asking for your favorite stories of foster kids is sponsored by All the Impossible Things by Lindsay Lackey, and Macmillan Children’s.

A bit of magic, a sprinkling of adventure, and a whole lot of heart collide in this extraordinary story of a girl navigating the foster care system in search of where she belongs.

Red has power over the wind. Whenever she gets upset the wind picks up, and moving from family to family keeps her skies stormy.

Red’s newest family, the Grooves, fit like a puzzle piece into her heart. Just as she’s getting settled, a fresh storm rolls in: her mother. Now Red must overcome her own tornadoes and find the family she needs.

With love, anything is possible.

Families come in all shapes, types, and sizes: biological, adoptive, foster, and combinations thereof! In celebration of the many flavors of family, we want to know what your favorite stories of foster kids are. Find us on Facebook and Twitter and shout those titles at us, and check back next week for a reading list!
