Keeping Safe the Stars by Sheila O'Connor

Meet the Stars: Pride, Nightingale, and Baby - three siblings united by fierce loyalty to one another and to their grandpa, Old Finn, who cares for them. When he falls ill and has to go to the hospital, they are left alone and Pride, the oldest, tries to fill his shoes and protect her family. She doesn't want them to end up in another group home. Keeping safe the Stars turns out to be a big job, and luckily Pride finds help just in time.
