Beautiful book. Jeffrey Lee does a great job portraying the struggles of both Molly and Chris, and their coming together to overcome these hardships. Strengthening their friendship in the process. Would recommend to many friends of mine.
this book is about a girl and how going to a new place and making new friends and learning to accept them the way are. and she also helps her family and no matter what friends are friends.

A nice quick read. It began as realistic fiction, but definitely contains science fiction aspects. I enjoyed it.
