From the Series Locked Out

  • Interest Level: Grade 6 - Grade 12   ·  
  • Reading Level: Grade 4

Deja’s mom has never been there when Deja needed her. She’s lied, run off, and gotten into trouble with the law more times than anyone can count. She always promises to change―and always breaks those promises.

Now―seventeen years after Deja was born in prison―her mom is back behind bars and having another baby. Deja agrees to raise baby Heaven until her mother returns home. She’s determined to give Heaven the loving family life Deja never had.

But being a substitute parent is harder than Deja expected. She’ll need help from her friends, her grandmother, and even the mother she stopped trusting a long time ago. And she hopes that maybe―just maybe―she can keep her promises to Heaven.
