The Double Life of Zoe Flynn by Janet Lee Carey
Making friends in sixth grade is hard enough, but when Zoe Flynn lies to conceal her family’s homelessness, she endangers her one true friendship in her new school. When Zoe’s father lost his job in California, the family was forced to pack up their old van and move to Oregon in search of better possibilities. Zoe misses everything left behind—her creaky house, her best friend Kellen, and her dog Merlin. Now, while her father searches for jobs, Zoe’s family sleeps in their cramped van and tries to save money for rent. As time passes, Zoe’s definition of home begins to change.
