"We're on the road again," could be the theme song of Dinnie's family as her father takes them from opportunity to opportunity and new town to new town. Dinnie never gets to stay in one place long enough to put down any roots and most of the time no one in her family is paying her any attention because her brother and sister keep their parents in an uproar with their juvenile mistakes. But Dinnie's aunt and uncle swoop in and whisk Dinnie off to their boarding school in Switerland. Dinnie is determined not to risk any roots in this environment as well...she has learned her lesson but everyone here has left home behind and through the wisdom of her friends and family Dinnie finds herself filled with possibilities...or as her friend Guthrie would say, her bloomability. 270 pages Ages 9-12
