"Hariet, known as Ari, is sent to live with her aunt and her partner after her family falls apart.  This stable environment, at least for a short time, buoys Ari throughout her life.  Written from the perspective of her age starting at age 8, Ari grows up, always with her friend Jasper, a seahorse, by her side.  Life is a struggle and a mess, but Ari keeps a (mostly) positive outlook as she moves from an unknowing 8 year old to a knowing, but still hopeful, resilient young adult.  A break your heart read that will keep you rooting for Ari to not just survive, but thrive."--Reviewed by Percy
