Description

In early June, 1964, the Benevolent Home for Necessitous Girls burns to the ground and its vulnerable residents are thrust out into the world. The orphans, who know no other home, find their lives changed in an instant. Arrangements are made for the youngest residents, but the seven oldest girls are sent on their way with little more than a clue or two to their past and the hope of learning about the families they have never known. On their own for the first time in their lives, they are about to experience the world in ways they never imagined.
Bestselling authors Kelley Armstrong, Vicki Grant, Marthe Jocelyn, Kathy Kacer, Norah McClintock, Teresa Toten and Eric Walters team up to create this series of linked YA novels. Readers can discover all seven Secrets in any order in this beautiful boxed set.
This collection includes the 7 following titles:

A Big Dose of Lucky
Stones on a Grave
My Life Before Me
Shattered Glass
Innocent

Editorial Review

"A compelling genealogical mystery set in 1964...Poignant and resonant, it’s an important exploration for readers seeking their own identities."
