Calle's single mother has kept moving around and changing boyfriends for her daughter's entire life so the girl has never been able to have friends or feel like she belonged anywhere. Finally they've arrived in a community where Calle (pronounced like Callie) develops relationships. Then her life falls apart again.
The plot is exciting, the characters are realistic, and the writing is beautiful and poetic.
I highly recommend this book for teens who like to read.
