From the author of the successful FRIENDS FOR KEEPS series comes Wren Jo Byrd, a nine-year-old whose lie about her parents' impending divorce alienates her best friend and causes her to question lots of things, both little and big.
School is starting up again and all Wren Jo Bryd is worried about is that everyone will find out her parents separated over the summer. No one knows the truth, not even her best friend, Amber. But something else changed over the summer: A new girl, Marianna, moved to town and Amber's acting like Marianna is her best friend, not Wren. Nothing is the same for Wren anymore and she's not even sure where to call home. Is it the place where her daddy hangs his hat at night? Is it where her cat sleeps? Is it the kitchen counter where her mom orders takeout every night? At first Marianna makes everything harder on Wren, but when the girls are forced to spend more time together, Wren learns that Marianna once had to ask many of the same questions—the biggest ones, as well as the smallest ones—Wren is asking now.
