Eleven-year-old Edwina confronts old and new challenges when her longtime best friend Sally faces the inevitable death of the grandmother who raised her.
Eddie Becky and Sally Hobart, best friends since age 7, must cope with change and transformation the summer between sixth and seventh grade. Though Eddie depends on lists and an elaborate system of colored rubber bands on her wrist to help her control a confusing world, she's unprepared for Sally's odd behavior and disinterest in their normal summer routines. Soon, Eddie must figure out how to be there for her best friend in ways she never conceived. Alison McGhee is the author of the critically acclaimed young adult novel ALL RIVERS FLOW TO THE SEA.
