Summary
  • A moving, bittersweet tale reminiscent of Sharon Creech's Walk Two Moons set in a West Virginia coal-mining town When her brother dies in a fire, Sasha Harless has no one left, and nowhere to turn. After her father died in the mines and her mother ran off, he was her last caretaker. They'd always dreamed of leaving Caboose, West Virginia together someday, but instead she's in foster care, feeling more stuck and broken than ever. But then Sasha discovers family she didn't know she had, and she finally has something to hold onto, especially sweet little Mikey, who's just as broken as she is. Sasha even makes her first friend at school, and is slowly learning to cope with her brother's death through writing poetry, finding a new way to express herself when spoken words just won't do. But when tragedy strikes the mine her cousin works in, Sasha fears the worst and takes Mikey and runs, with no plans to return. In this sensitive and poignant portrayal, Sarah Dooley shows us that life, like poetry, doesn't always take the form you intend
  • When her last family member dies in a fire, Sasha is placed in foster care but is intent on leaving her small West Virginia mining town, until she makes a new friend at school and learns how to manage her grief through poetry
  • "After her brother dies in a fire, Sasha Harless has no one left and nowhere to turn, but soon discovers family she didn't know she had, and begins to heal through poetry"--
