They move to a small town in Virginia to live with her grandmother. Vinnie feels lonely and overlooked. Her little brother, Mason, has not spoken since Daddy died, and the school administration has a hard time dealing with him.

She also finds a curious classmate, Lupe, who plays alone at recess and, also, has a special friend in Mr. Clayton. A story of children facing very difficult challenges in their lives offered up with resilience, hopeful friendship, and the compassion of a wonderful teacher. 128 pages
