Safekeeping by Karen Hesse
Radley is on her way back from volunteering in Haiti to reconnect with her parents in Vermont. But when she finally disembarks from the plane, her parents aren't there to meet her.
Radley: "I've never arrived in an airport without my parents meeting me. They always come, day or night, no matter where I land, no matter when I land ...they're always there."
Radley must find her own way home this time. With no cash and a credit card no one will accept, she finds herself on the road walking home.
