Awake and Dreaming by Kit Pearson

Theo lives with her mother, and conditions are pretty bad. They have to move often and Theo never has any friends. She is very quiet, and loves reading. Occasionally she even has to miss out from school in order to dance on street corners for money. One day, on the way to her aunt's house, Theo finds herself part of a fairy tale family- the Kaldors. They accept her as a sister and every day is exactly like what she's always wanted. But the dream ends as she returns to her real life, back to her uncaring mother and possessive aunt. Soon she meets a family, and it turns out it's the Kaldors. They befriend Theo , and Theo realizes that everything is not always what they seem.
