Jane had lived at the James Ballard Memorial Home ever since she could remember. Then came the wonderful summer when she had invitations to visit two families for a month each.

Favorite from childhood--glad that the right thing to do also turns out to be where Jane's heart takes her. ( )

Book description
Jane Douglas has lived at the James Ballard Memorial Home for orphans for most of her childhood. Reliable and sensible, she has watched other children find families of their own, but never once has any family wanted to adopt Jane. Then one magical summer, Jane gets not one -- but two-- invitations for a month each to live with a real family in a real house. If only the summer could last forever.
