|Summary, etc.:|| Nine-year-old Carrie Parker and her mother, Libby, are making a fresh start in the small town of Hartsville, North Carolina, ready to put their turbulent past behind them. Violence has shattered their family and left Libby nearly unable to cope. And while Carrie once took comfort in her beloved sister, Emma, her mother has now forbidden even the mention of her name.

Flock picks up where Me & Emma (2005) leaves off. Nine-year-old Carrie and her down-on-her-luck mother are leaving Toast, North Carolina, to try to put the past as far behind them as possible. But luck and their broken-down car only get them as far as Huntsville. They take up residence on the outskirts of town, and it becomes obvious that little has changed. Carrie's mother is still negligent and abusive; they run out of money, and Carrie is forced to fend for herself. On a food hunt at Wendy's, Carrie is befriended by a family who, coincidentally, have lost a daughter with the same name who looks like Carrie. As the novel unfolds, Carrie's mother begins to unravel, as do the stories about their lives. We do find out what happened to Carrie's little sister, Emma, developments delivered with a heaping spoonful of saccharine. Carrie is an interesting narrator, speaking like no other nine-year-old, while never seeming the worse for wear despite the horrors she experiences. Readers who loved Me & Emma will pounce on the sequel. Copyright 2012 Booklist Reviews.
