Davey's father was murdered when a break-in at his store went horribly wrong. Now, Davey, her mother and her little brother are left shattered, with no idea how to go about rebuilding their lives. The family flees to New Mexico, to escape the painful memories. In this alien place, with its arid landscape and sunbaked earth, Davey meets Wolf, a mysterious boy who understands her without asking questions. Slowly she begins to piece the broken fragments of herself together again. Judy Blume has written some of the best books of our time about real-life issues
-family stress and pressures, what happens when your parents divorce, the problems of growing up and sexual awakening, bereavement -with insight, sensitivity and honesty. The response of readers all around the world continues to make her one of the best-loved writers ever published.
