Summary:  When Ari’s mother died four years ago, she had two final wishes: that Ari and her older brother, Gage, would stay together always, and that Ari would go to Carter, the middle school for gifted students. He and Ari have been “couch surfing,” staying with friends and sneaking into a juvenile shelter to escape the cold Maine nights. But all of this jumping around makes it hard for Ari to keep up and getting into Carter starts to seem impossible. Will Ari be forced to break one of her promises to Mama?
