Overview

Novelist and poet Pamela Porter uses free verse to tell this moving, gritty and award-winning story that is accessible to a wide range of ages and reading abilities.

It is 1965 and 12-year-old Emaline must deal with a family that is falling apart. Her father accidentally runs over her leg, leaving her with a permanent disability and then leaves Emaline and her mother on their own. Despite the neighbors' disapproval, Emaline's mother hires Angus, a patient from the local mental hospital, to work their wheat farm. Though the small town's prejudice creates a cloud of suspicion around Angus that nearly results in tragedy, in the end he becomes a force for healing as Emaline comes to terms with her injury and the loss of her father.
