COMPROMISED, Heidi Ayarbe. From the cover:
With a con-man dad and a long-gone mom, the only thing that makes sense to Maya is science. In fact, every time her dad's cons go wrong, she has a scientific way to fix it to keep them both safe and together. Only this time Maya's scientific method doesn't work. She finds herself stuck in an orphanage and then living with two unlikely allies on the street, where scientific laws don't apply and she has to learn to live on instinct alone. But when Maya goes off in search of an aunt she's never met in hopes of finding some semblance of stability in her chaotic world, she finds something even more important: her own strength. This is a powerful story about life, family and the teenagers who slip through the cracks.
Due out in bookstores everywhere on May 4, COMPROMISED is the second novel by the author of my favorite YA book from 2009, FREEZE FRAME.
