Jan, please provide plot details (no spoilers) and the genre of the book you’re looking for in the Topic header, not something vague like "Help! can't remember this book". Someone is more likely to recognize your book.

When did you read this? Children's, YA, or adult? What genre is it? Remember the cover?
