We first met the character called Ellen Foster in 1986, in the debut novel by Kaye Gibbons called simply Ellen Foster. Ellen was a child of 11 in that book, an orphan who sought out her own foster family after being kicked out of the house by her aunt on Christmas day. The book has become a modern classic, an Oprah book club selection. And now it has a sequel. Gibbons calls the new book The Life All Around Me By Ellen Foster.
