Overview
"Vivid and moving. I loved it." --Rebecca Stead, Newbery-winning author of When You Reach Me

Julia and Eliza are best friends, so when Julia's mom is sent to serve in Iraq, it makes perfect sense for her to spend the summer with Eliza and her parents. Any other time, Julia would be thrilled to be there. But on top of worrying about her mom, Julia develops her first real crush. The gap between Julia and Eliza keeps widening--until Eliza does something drastic to win back her best friend.

In her follow-up to the award-winning Anything But Typical, Nora Baskin Raleigh has written a powerful, touching story about friendship, first love, and how the people who are farthest away from us are sometimes the ones we need the most.
