When Wren Abbott and Darra Monson are eight years old, Darra's father steals a minivan. He doesn't know that Darra 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 it is, if they are 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 friendship that can overcome pain.
