About the Novel: A classic coming of age story of fourteen year old, Sara, who lives in a small town in West Virginia. This Newbery Medal winner story centers on Sara and her troubled relationship with her remote father, her perfect older sister, and Joe Melby, a boy from school. All of these problems are quickly placed on the backburner when Charlie, her mentally disabled brother, wanders out of the house in the middle of the night and goes missing. While resolving this serious crisis, Sara discovers a great deal of herself, and when she and Joe find Charlie safe and sound, she comes to grips with the knowledge that she is comfortable with who she is and who she is becoming.
