As the school year unfolds, Molly realizes that her new home may be less a temporary stop and more a last resort. Now she begins to discover the secrets behind the doors in this quiet town. And she comes to learn that the world is full of strays--some just end up where they belong sooner than others.
Richard Peck, best-selling author of more than twenty acclaimed novels, will once again touch readers with his compassion and humor in a story that speaks to the stray in all of us.
For ages 10 to 14.
