    Lovely prose and fun (and funny) images, while allowing them to begin to reclaim their lives postcanon

    Summary

    Roberta can spot a runner a mile off.

    Over the years, she's seen all sorts. Women running away from scumbag husbands. Men running away from their responsibilities. Kids running away from their parents who were too strict or not strict enough, not around or around too damn much.

    This white boy sitting in her kitchen asking to rent one of her apartments is a runner, no doubt about it. But just what kind of a runner, she isn't sure.

    Or, how Roberta Taylor adopted a lost white boy and his baby niece.
