Description

When Wren Abbott and Darra Monson are eight years old, Darra's father steals a minivan. He doesn't know that Wren is hiding in the back. The hours and days that follow change the lives of both girls. Darra is left with a question that only Wren can answer. Wren has questions, too.

Years later, in a chance encounter at camp, the girls face each other for the first time. They can finally learn the truth--that is, if they're willing to reveal to each other the stories that they've hidden for so long. Told from alternating viewpoints, this novel-in-poems reveals the complexities of memory and the strength of a friendship that can overcome pain.

Review quote

"Many teen readers will identify with Wren and Darra and how events that happened to us when we were younger help shape the person we become." --VOYA

"Beginning with a horrific story of an accidental kidnapping, this poetic novel is impossible to put down....A masterpiece!" --Shirley Mullin, Kids Ink Children's Bookstore

"Like Frost's Printz Honor Book, Keesha's House (2003), this novel in verse stands out through its deliberate use of form to illuminate emotions and cleverly hide secrets in the text." --Booklist
