Lucy is different - 'I don't have right words for things and I have no good behavior' - and she doesn't understand why her mother has sent her to live with the elderly Mister and Missus on their farm.
Yet she knows she must never leave or else her mother won't be able to find her again.
But when something terrible happens to Samantha, her only friend on the farm, Lucy embarks on a dangerous journey, willing to risk everything for her friend.
Julie Sarkissian's enchanting and enthralling debut novel introduces an unforgettable new heroine of contemporary fiction whose original voice, exuberance and bravery linger long after the final page.
