    Summary

    Emma Swan, ten years of age, has decided that she will not get attached to Foster Mother Number Twelve, her new temporary siblings, or anything else that comes with House Number Twelve. Foster homes are not loving, and soon, it would just be another number in the back of her journal, just another house, just another family that didn't want her.

    Emma doesn't expect kindness from Foster Mother Number Twelve. She doesn't expect compassion from the girl she's meant to consider her sister. And Emma most certainly doesn't expect Regina, the self-proclaimed smartest girl in her class, to be anything more than the nerd she sits beside.

    But maybe House Number Twelve is more than just a number on the back page of her journal. And maybe, just maybe, things aren't as temporary as Emma swears they are.

    (or, the one where roots try to grow, young love can one day be more, and forever homes are real)

    Summary

    In the past, Emma Nolan disconnected from her peers in high school, preferring to keep to herself. In her sophomore year of high school, she decided to try and join the boy’s wrestling team because she was bored. She didn’t expect herself to become the champion of the most bullied kid in school or the secret best friend of the school queen. She also didn’t expect to join a club that would change her life.

    In the present, Emma is trying to cope with a humiliating loss in her martial arts career. She claims to be “training” but is stuck in limbo between wanting to retire and try again. She is isolated from her former best friend, Regina Mills, a local celebrity chef and the rest of her old friends. When one of them calls her with an idea to honor their deceased teacher, she is confronted with unresolved feelings and questions about how powerful love truly is.
