Young lives can be challenged by incredible struggle and pain. Marie and her father are trying to deal with the pain they share after Mom abandons them. At school Marie meets Lena and learns her secret: Lena and her sister, Dion, are being "touched" by their father. Lena wants to escape. As always with Jacqueline Woodson, the feelings and struggles of the characters are exquisitely crafted and will resonate with readers long after the book ends.
