Someone sent me a question as Anonymous feedback, which meant I couldn't respond. So here is my response:
why did they not try to get emily into vikis house
instead of her g.p. since they dont really want
Because she is a minor, and relatives get custody. Unless there was a reason to have her seen as unfit, she would have to go live with her grandparents.
Plus, I have plans for the characters in the next full book "What Lies Ahead"
