When Joey Campbell's biological father is released from prison, four-year-old Joey faces a life no one could've planned. His father wants custody, and a judge's quick decision deals a devestating blow to the Campbell family: Joey must be returned to his biological parents. In a haze of grief and disbelief, the Campbells watch their adopted son pick a dandelion and blow the feathery seeds into the wind.
And in the days following the ruling, Jack Campbell conceives a desperate and dangerous thought. What if they could devise a way out? What if they take Joey and just disappear...Like dandelion dust?
Awesome Read| Posted November 01, 2008
I had a hard time putting this one down. I felt so sorry for Joey, having to be uprooted like that. And I totally sympathized with Molly and Jack. This one had more Christianity in it than "A Thousand Tomorrows". There it was subtle but always underlying. This was sincere without being sappy, as I've found some Christian works to be. I continue to be satisfied at how she deals with bad characters by not going overboard in describing their badness, and how people find Jesus. A most admirable story of desperation, sacrifice, and reconciliation.

I loved the plot of this book! It kept me totally involved in the story. I love Karen's style of writing. You feel the emotions that the characters feel. While this is certainly not my favorite book by her, it is still awesome!
