Summary:
Restored in 2000, and based on the novel by Newbery Medallist Betsy Byars, this moving video will offer students insight into the challenges faced by foster children. Stuck in a foster home with two boys, a young Kristy McNichol stars as Carly, the headstrong wisecracking teen who knows she's got no say in what happens to her. After all, she and the other two foster children are just like pinballs being bounced into each other. As soon as they get settled, somebody will put another coin in the machine and off they'll go again. It's not until the three develop a special friendship that they realize they can take control of their own lives.

Only available in the US.
